I do get your perspective, changing the canvas position based on the ThingMark location is definitely a good option. When it comes to broader view, it might affect in other case like - if customer is using multiple ThingMarks to a single 3d model etc.,
Can I know your specific requirement for requesting this feature? That would be helpful for us to either suggest a workaround or a story for enhancement.
Giri, Thanks...a workaround will be appreciated also! Some of the cad tool functionality out of Creo is already built into the Studio ribbon. (zoom selected and mate). At the very least, the ribbon or canvas needs an orientation function similar to what I'm showing in Creo View.
In regards to being able to orient based on the Thingmark, I'm imagining the workflow similar to zoom selected where the user selects and makes active the thingmark, then in the ribbon select the orient function.
Think about the user experience with ipad/iphone camera scanning the Thingmark...about 99% of the time, the user is going to put the phone directly in front of the thingmark, whether it is on the floor, wall or model. I want to have that view while I'm working on the canvas with the thingmark...it will make placing the gauges and other 3d widgets so much easier.
