The left view sets the camera looking right, in the direction of the positive X axis.

How to use

  • Go to the menu View → Standard views → Std ViewLeft.svg Left.
  • Or press the Std ViewLeft.svg Left button.
  • Or press 6 in the numerical pad of the keyboard.


The left view can be set from the Python console.

It is a method of the ActiveView of the ActiveDocument. The ActiveView only exists when the graphical interface is available; it does not exist when FreeCAD is used in purely console mode.
