Is there a way to zoom into a part in the part environment so that it is displayed exactly 1:1?


Thanks in advance.

so it's 1:1 scale on your monitor?


nope - no way to program that as each person runs at different resolution and screen size so would be different for everyone.


only way I can think would be to create a couple planes perpendicular to the screen and offset them a distance and slowly zoom with F3 while measuring the planes with a ruler...  But, as soon as you rotate it will probably slightly screw with the scaling.
