Default Orthographic back view.

I'm trying to UV map a model I just made. Is there a way I can get a back view (like front). If i spin the model round in the perspective view I grab a whole load of unwanted faces.

If there is an easier way than that I am all ears. Thanks.

maybe you should use 'backculling': Attribute Editor -> Mesh Component Display -> Vertex Backface Culling: on, Backface Culling: 'full' lets you just selct the faces or UV's ur facing to…
Hope this helps...

EDIT: maybe have a look in the Polygon Modeling Manual, Changing component display

you do this :

in your front viewport you select :: Panel > Orthographic > New > Front

Then you :: View > Select Camera

And finaly you :: Change Translate Z to be = -100, and finaly Rotate Y = 180

If you like You can rename the camera from Front1 to Back.


I hope you understand, Good luck.
