Summary0000798: Allow to redefine the standard views
DescriptionAllow to choose from diffrent possibilties to orient the standard views.
One should be able to choose the normal axis, positive or negative orientation, and 0°,90°,180° and 270° degrees of rotation. Which leads to 3x2x4 24 choices.
An alternative way to select the orientation is to quantisize the current/saved camera view to the nearest choice.
As in other CAD software the front view should be the reference.
An additional way would be a offer list of suggested, well known coordinates conventions, like the (X:Out,Y:Right,Z:Up) for Land vehicles and the FreeCAD Ship Module or (X:Out,Y:Left,Z:Down) for other craft. Or Autocad default (X:Right,Y:In,Z:Up) and Soldiworks default (X:Right,Y:Up,Z:Out)
TagsNo tags attached.

Currently the quaternions are hard coded in src/Gui/View3DPy.cpp. A possible implementation would be to save the rotation to the new TOP surface as a property of the DOCUMENT. That rotation would than the multiplies with the hard coded one.
