Unit 6 - Micro Project - How to change the gazebo/simulation view

How could I get top view in Gazebo simulator in Robot Ignite Academy webpage as there is no any input in gazebo simulator.

Hi @akarsh1982002, welcome to our community.

Although there is no input button for the top view, you can use the mouse normally to achieve that.

Just right-click on the scene and move the mouse around. This will get the view you want.

Please let us know if I misunderstood your question.


Hi, any way to do this with a trackpad on a mac? Or, any keyboard commands?

Thanks. -T

Hi @trav,

I’m afraid I don’t know how to do this with a trackpad yet, neither I know yet how to do it only with keyboard commands, but I would test using the keys up and down, to see whether it works.

@trav On my mac, if I hold the shift key then the workspace rotates. If I pinch with the trackpad I zoom in and out.
