Q - question

Simple navigation - switching 3D views with your numpad.

A - answer By loading a simple LISP program you can assign a quick navigation to your numeric keyboard (numpad), switching standard 3D views. By this you will create a keyboard alternative to the AutoCAD navigation cube - ViewCube.

Download the VIEWS0.LSP file from and drag it to the briefcase icon in the APPLOAD dialog. This file will define the commands "0" to "9", which you can mnemotechnically invoke from your keyboard num pad - e.g. 5 = top view, 4 = left side view, 3 = south-east iso view, etc. These are command names, not hot-keys, so you have to confirm them by Enter.
