Custom Cplane ortho views ok as long as I dont choose right when view left etc

One is unable to alter or reset the ortho view in custom Cplane.

Lets say I have a custom cplane made using three points method for a house roof,
Right view sees a sloping house, top view the perp view of the roof.

I however want a left view, I alter right view to left view and end up with an upright house in that view.

If I alter Tp view to Top, it ceases to be the useful perp view onto roof, I can now see down the chimney stack !

Left view house should still slope as I am looking at house roof perp on with my custom cplane. so as to have the ortho views give me a set of views befitting that.

How do I keep top left right and so on as the peculiar angle views of the house


The Plan command might be what you’re after here, it’s hard to tell. SetView CPLane Left, etc. Or, possibly, set Universal CPlanes, in Options > Modeling Aids.


Hi Pascal,

I thought I had explained it well but the attached storyline top to bott jpg of my quest and problem will now clarify things.

How to choose Back or Bott or Top if I mess up the view or simply wish to see back of house and have the odd angles still showing, as opposed to end up with standard Cplane views again.

I am sure others also get this and wonder what now.
