Navigating the 3D Environment

AutoCloud's 3D Environment is an interactive diagram of your infrastructure. The diagrams are generated and updated with each crawl, generating a new version. By default, the diagram is zoomed out to show all resources in the environment. You may use mouse or keyboard controls to move around the diagram.

Camera Type: Switch between 2D and 3D

By default, the camera type is 2D which is fixed and has an isometric perspective (pan + zoom).

3D view has free movement, and you are able to pan, zoom and rotate the camera. If you are using a trackpad, make sure you have secondary click enabled to the bottom right or left corner.
