Appendix A: The Bottom Line > Chapter 3: Moving Around the Model

Chapter 3: Moving Around the Model

Use the mouse to navigate inside Navisworks. Learning to use the mouse to navigate is critical to understanding and mastering the tools in Navisworks. Almost every Navigation tool utilizes the mouse for navigation in some way. There are shortcuts for tools like Orbit, Zoom, and Pan that can aid in your navigation.

Master It Explain the process for using the mouse controls with Zoom, Pan, and Orbit.

Solution With a tool like Select selected, you can use the middle mouse button to pan by holding down the middle mouse button, zoom by rolling the middle mouse button, and orbit by pressing the middle mouse button and selecting the Shift key.

Walk and fly through the model. As with the Walk tool, learning the Fly tool is essential. While at first this tool may seem difficult to understand, it has great potential for navigating large sites and covering great distances.
