The bottom view sets the camera looking up, in the direction of the positive Z axis.

How to use

  • Go to the menu View → Standard views → Std ViewBottom.svg Bottom.
  • Or press the Std ViewBottom.svg Bottom button.
  • Or press 5 in the numerical pad of the keyboard.


The bottom view can be set from the Python console.

It is a method of the ActiveView of the ActiveDocument. The ActiveView only exists when the graphical interface is available; it does not exist when FreeCAD is used in purely console mode.
