I want to see an angle in between front and side view that's exacly like front and side view - orthographic with the grid. However when I change the angle the grid disappears and it changes to perspective.


You can use the Numpad keys to freely switch from perspective to orthographic views.

Numpad 5 toggles perspective/orthographic view mode without changing your camera angle.

  • $\begingroup$ Oh, so if I understand correctly, you're trying to view the XZ grid for example while you're not axis aligned to it? $\endgroup$ – stphnl329 Feb 28 at 19:31
  • $\begingroup$ yes so I can align my reference image from different angles $\endgroup$ – stackers Feb 28 at 19:47

    $\begingroup$ I don't think that has been implemented into Blender, did a bit of poking around and it seems you can only view/hide the grid while you're in the ortho front, side etc views. :-/ $\endgroup$ – stphnl329 Feb 28 at 19:58
  • $\begingroup$ okay well thanks for looking $\endgroup$ – stackers Feb 28 at 20:14
