I have reference pictures of Iron Man that I'm modeling. The pictures are angled. So I have modeled the object at the same angle. However, I would like to have a straightforward view of the object AND the angled view of the object at the same time in different windows. Any change in the object is seen in both windows since the object is the same, only the viewport view angle is changed. I know this is possible, but I don't know how to do this. thanks.enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure what you mean, just split your 3D view? You could also link-duplicate your object with an Alt D, this way you don't have to split the view, if you work on a copy of the object it will change the other one $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ How do you split the 3D view? and how do I set the one of the views to the same angle as the top object (in my picture) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ put your cursor at the corner of the view until you have a cross, left click and drag, to collapse you just need to have the cross and drag towards an existing window. By default the new window will have the exact same view $\endgroup$

If you want to keep a front view in order to keep a front view of your reference image, the best is probably to link-duplicate your object (AltD instead of ShiftD), rotate it so that it is rotated as your reference:

If you want to split the windows, put your cursor at the corner of the view until you have a cross, left click and drag, to collapse you just need to have the cross and drag towards an existing window. By default the new window will have the exact same view:
