In CAD programs there are usually standard viewports that have buttons so as to find or easily return to a viewport. When you start a new blender file, it opens up in a somewhat isometric view of a cube. I am trying to return to this view or recreate it with an easy way to return to it as a default reference.

Thanks in advance.

If I've understood you correctly... Start blender with no file loaded. Arrange your viewport. Then click on File->Defaults->Save Startup File

To return to certain viewport setups while working with blender try the following addon (here: Blender 2.80): enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ I misunderstood your question. I understood you wanted a certain viewport for any new start. I edited my previous answer accordingly. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the updated answer. I don't think Blender is for me as I'm very much used to regular CAD standards without addons and maintenance overhead. $\endgroup$
