SetViewDirection( <Direction> )
Sets the direction of the 3D view orientation depending on the given object.
Example: SetViewDirection(Vector((0, 0, 1)))
Example: SetViewDirection((0, 0, 1))
Example: SetViewDirection(x + y + z = 1)


SetViewDirection( )
Sets the direction of the 3D view orientation to the default position.
Example: SetViewDirection()


SetViewDirection( <Direction>, <Boolean animated> )
Sets the direction of the 3D view orientation depending on the given object, with optional animation.
Example: In order to obtain the rotation of the 3D view, depending on the values of a previously created slider α, use the command SetViewDirection(Vector((1; α; -30°)), false) in the OnUpdate scripting tab of slider α.


Notes:
  • The view direction can be set towards a line, segment, plane, etc.
  • If you do eg SetViewDirection(x + y + z = 1) twice then there are two possible outcomes and the second one will rotate the view 180°. To avoid ambiguity use eg SetViewDirection(Vector((0, 0, 1)))
