Activate Orbit/Rotate feature via Mouse in Fusion 360

The default Fusion 360 has "PAN" option when you click the middle button of the mouse. If you want to rotate you have to go and select the "ORBIT" icon at the bottom of the screen.

This kind of interface makes it somewhat difficult to execute as one has to frequently rotate the model to get an overview of the model being constructed. Solidworks users may find it even more difficult to use it. This tutorial explains how to activate orbit function in mouse.

  1. Step 1: Open Fusion 360 and go to Preferences.

  2. Step 2: A default window appears, on that navigate to "Pan, Zoom, Orbit Shortcuts"

  3. Step 3: In that select "Solidworks" from the drop down menu
