Working in a 3D Window

A 3D Window allows you to view and move around 3D data.

TIP: Click View > 3D to open this window.


  • You cannot edit the graphics in the 3D window nor can you add new graphics (a 3D window effectively has a status of Visible). This should be completed in the map window.
  • 3D Windows (like map windows) support drag and drop of datasets from the Windows Explorer.
  • 3D Windows can be printed either directly using the Print command or using a print template.
