Camera orbit not horizontal to bed



  • Can you orbit the camera without ending up with the bed at a funny angle? I would like the bed to stay horizontal as I orbit, rather than ending up like this / or this \ 😨

    I seem to need to constantly click the view cube to level the view after a right-click+drag, which is quite frustrating and imprecise. I do not see much use for a having the bed barrel-roll unpredictably as I'm moving the view.

    Looking around the settings I cannot find an option to keep the camera horizontal to the bed. If there isn't an option I feel the default behaviour should be as I've described. Maybe put a toggle padlock next to the view cube for people who need an unlocked "random barrel-roll" type orbit.

    We will look into how best to do this.

    When you are just trying to print or plate items it is very appropriate to have the camera be 'turn-table' style, but when trying to do complex editing it is usually much better to have it be 'trackball'.

    Thanks for the feedback, it is always useful.



  • Thanks Lars 🙂

    That or my beloved 3D Controller support! One day one could hope for this support. 😀
