The view is the area of the drawing space that appears on your screen. As your drawing becomes larger and more complex, it's important to find views that let you work at the right location in your drawing, at an appropriate level of detail.
Tip: Layers are a useful way to change how objects. You can place objects on various layers and then manipulate layer visibility. See Snap Modes.
This section covers views in 2D. When working in 3D, there are additional viewing tools and other ways to examine your model. See 3D Views and Examining the 3D Model.
