there is a 3d viewing technique calld crossview. you basically cross your eyes until 2 side by side images match up and create a single 3d image.

i always thought beaing able to view models in 3d while working on them would be helpfull, and when i discovered crossview i thought: i need to be able to view blender stuff like this.

what im looking for is a option to have 2 views of your obj open at the same time with a bit of offset and be able to turn them both while editing. i know you can just open other views and try to align them but as soon as i turn my view only one turns.

help would be greatly appreciated.

BTW: for some crossview examples check out /r/crossview

  • $\begingroup$ well by doing that the differenc would be way to large, and i still wouldnt be able to turn both windows simultaniously. if you would have read the question you would have realized that i already tried that. $\endgroup$ – laundmo Nov 12 '17 at 17:39

for blender v2.79 you can try this:

  • in the properties editor switch to 'Render Layers'
  • than activate 'views'
  • this defaults to 'Stereo 3D'
  • now go to the main menu 'Window' there is a new option 'Set Stereo 3D' - click it
  • here you can find multiple different ways - one is 'Side-by-Side'
  • if you choose it you can additionally enable 'Cross-Eyed'

for this to work you have to enter Full-Screen mode (Alt+F11).

additional information can also be found in this answer
and in the official documentation on multi-views

  • $\begingroup$ @Leander i have used crossview continuesly for hours at a time mostly in the space exploration game SpaceEngine. after that it feels like i did workout with my eyes bu tno other effects. $\endgroup$ – laundmo Jul 20 '18 at 12:17
  • $\begingroup$ @Laurin Amazing, exercise is healthy, don't forget to uncross your eyes once in a while. $\endgroup$ – Leander Jul 20 '18 at 12:19
  • $\begingroup$ @Leander dont worry, i wont xD although i do have to say that i didnt need to train for that. and i find it very amazng that it feels so natural to me. $\endgroup$ – laundmo Jul 20 '18 at 18:32
