Lock Horizon in Fusion 360?

Hi All,

 

I was wondering if there was a "Lock Horizon" setting in Fusion 360 like there is in Sketchup?  I use this to quickly rotate around an object without the model leaning left or right.  I do have the "dominant" setting enabled in my 3D mouse prefs, but it always seems to end up leaning left or right when I'm just trying to rotate around the Z-axis.

 

Thanks in advance!

Tom

I'm also having issues with this. I've added it to IdeaStation if you want to go vote for it.

Hi @tdurkin

Hi Josef,

 

Thanks this is actually exactly what I'm looking for, but it seems to only work with the orbit tool and the mouse, not a 3D navigation mouse like the 3DConnexion Space Mouse that so many people use in CAD work.  

 

It seems like this is also being discussed in this thread below, a couple other people have found the constrained orbit can't be applied to the space mouse.  Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks for the help!
