To Set the Display Depth Graphically
Be sure at least two views are open.
Open a view that is orthogonal to the view in which the Display Depth is being set, as well as an isometric view.
- Select the Set Display Depth view control.
Select the view in which to set the Display Depth.
If an isometric view is open, dynamics (as shown in the illustration) indicate the selected view's Display Depth. As you move the pointer in a different view, a shape indicates where the first depth boundary will be placed.
Define the front clipping plane.
To set front clipping plane to Enter a data point in Active Depth The view for which Display Depth is being set. Depth other than Active Depth A view other than the one for which Display Depth is being set, at the desired depth. (The view's Active Depth, which is set with the Set Active Depth view control, must be within its Display Depth.)
In a view other than the one for which Display Depth is being set, enter a data point to define the back clipping plane.
If you specify the same plane for the front and back clipping planes, a message displays and the Display Depth does not change.
Setting the Display Depth in the Top View (selected with data point 1) by entering data points in the front view (2 and 3) to define the front and back clipping planes, respectively.
Dynamics in Isometric view indicate the following for view in which Display depth is set: "F": Front clipping plane (2). "B": Back clipping plane (3). "A": Active Depth.
