Viewing same part from different views

Ever wanted to look at the same part from different views ?
Well there are two nice ways to accomplish this in SolidWorks…

One way is to use the WINDOW–VIEWPORT–TWO VIEW or FOUR VIEW commands.
You will then be able to rotate one of the views to look at the Front of your part/assy and another one to look at the back, etc.

The second way is to use the WINDOW–NEW WINDOW command.
This will “clone” the window you have active but you don’t really see it.
So then you do a WINDOW–TILE VERTICALLY or TILE HORIZONTALLY to see the two windows looking at the same part/assy.
This method is also great for looking at two different sheets of a DRAWING at the same time !   Where as the first method won’t allow this in a Drawing.
