View 3D overlays

After you add a camera to your project, there are six 3D overlays available in the Canvas to help you view and arrange your 3D elements:

Canvas showing 3D controls: Camera menu, 3D View tools, 3D scene icons, 3D grid, 3D Compass, and Inset view

Show or hide 3D overlays

Do one of the following:

  • Choose View > 3D Overlays, then choose an overlay type.

  • Click the View pop-up menu above the Canvas, then choose an overlay type.

    A checkmark next to an overlay type in the pop-up menu indicates that the overlay is enabled in the Canvas.
