Birds Eye View

The birds Eye View is available in the context menu (right-click > Advanced > View > Birds Eye, v+b shortcut). It is a useful tool for debugging view configuration and learning principles of 3D graphics

It displays a "bigger picture", which includes the current scene, the current Viewing Volume, Eye frame and other elements of the 3D graphical environment

The original KernelCAD view can be manipulated either interactively or programmatically and the Birds Eye view is updated immediately. Controls on the right hand side can be used to show/hide elements of the graphics. Toggle each check box to identify the elements in the view
