I can not find the function key or other way.
how you view the toolpath display "Front, side, bottom" etc ?
I know using mouse to rotate, but I need exact "front"  view ?

thanks

As Terry says - hold the left mouse button and drag the image.

If you want to get into programming the function keys with VB and using the screen designer then fine but it is hardly worth all that effort as the mouse system works well.

No way as far as I know, just the rotate or Iso as you say.

thank you guys,
I thought I miss this "function keys".

I think this should put on the next update ?
don't you think this is necessary ? or it's just me who needs it ?

Cheers

Personally I dont need it or see a need for it but others may think differently, you being one ;) For me there are much more important things such as Turn getting some long overdue work done to it.

the reason I need it is because I just want to double check the depth before I cut accurately by looking at the toolpath "front".

mostly when I use mouse to drag to front, the toolpath is just disappear, I think it's too close to view.

anyway, is not a big deal.

Will the Z extents on the Toolpath screen not tell you that, or is it differing depths you want?
You can zoom in and out on the toolpath view if thats what you are meaning by it disapearing.
