Use the following controls to interact with the Segmentation Viewer:

  • Select View Full Screen to view the model in full screen in a new tab (optional).
  • The Home icon resets the viewer to the default orientation and zoom level.
  • A viewer aligned along the X points X-axis toward the viewer, the Y-axis points up, and the Z-axis points to the left.
  • Similarly, the viewer alignment along the Y points Y-axis away from the viewer, the Z-axis points up, and the X-axis points right. The alignment of the viewer on the Z points Z-axis towards the viewer, the Y-axis points up, and the X-axis points right.
  • Zoom in and zoom out of the model by scrolling with the mouse wheel.
  • To rotate the model, click and drag with the mouse.
  • To reposition the model, hold the shift key and drag with the mouse.
