rotate origin issue 2014

Hi all,

 

I am having an intermittent issue with panning the view around a part or an assembly.

When I click “Shift & Middle Mouse Button” rotate sometimes the part will rotate around the Screen Triad Origin and the same part at a different time will rotate around the part origin.

 

When the part rotates around the Triad origin I can press the “Space bar” and it goes back to rotating around the part origin.

This is a new thing that has only started since I updated to 2014. Does anyone else have this issue?

 

Thanks

Mark

Hold F4 and click where you want the center of rotation to be. It needs to inside or near the circle, so it may take a couple of clicks.
Better still, buy a 3-D controller.

Hi rdyson,

 

Thanks for the reply, since upgrading inventor to 2014 I seem to be getting quite a few things going wrong (or acting different). I have just had another crash for no apparent reason.

 

Hopefully in the next week or so (because I keep whinging at my boss) I should be getting the graphics card updated to a GTX 780. As a side note, I have also upgraded a plugin called MDTools 750 for manifold design. This might also be a cause for the rotation origin changing – Oh hum!)

 

Thanks

Mark

Mark,

 


As Rdyson mentioned, using F4 is more practical.

If you want to rotate around one specific component : zoom on it so it's in the center of the view, F4 and click in the center of the view, then with F4 you'll rotate around this.

Hi Pierre,

 

Thanks for the follow up reply. Rotating using "Shift - middle mouse" was never an issue using Inventor 2010, 2012 and 2013.

Maybe its just an Idiosyncrasy of my particular setup (old pc,  graphic drivers etc...)

 

Hey - on the bright side, I might even be able to get my boss to fund a new pc (ha)

 

Cheers

Mark
