The rear view sets the camera looking to the front, in the direction of the negative Y axis.

How to use

  • Go to the menu View → Standard views → Std ViewRear.svg Rear.
  • Or press the Std ViewRear.svg Rear button.
  • Or press 4 in the numerical pad of the keyboard.


The rear 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.
