  • The Side View is a 2D representation of the Build Bed in the Z-X plane. It also provides the LayerSlider, which you can click and drag to move up and down the layers of the part.
  • The 3D View is an interactive representation of the Build Bed where you can quickly change theangle from which the part is viewed using one of the View icons.
  • To resize any view, point the cursor on the vertical or the horizontal borders. When you see the cursor change to the Resize tool (two small arrows pointing away from each other), left-click on the border and drag to resize.
