The 3D view Viewpoint type allows users to configure an output window displaying the desired objects in a three dimensional view focused on the desired object. A View command can be used to generate a 3D view, or a ViewWindow object with a 3D view Viewpoint can be used. The following is a list of the configurable options for a 3D view Viewpoint.
Sample 3D View in FreeFlyer
To create a 2D or 3D Mission View centered on a central body other than the Earth, including custom Celestial Objects, create a ViewWindow and edit the Viewpoint Source and Target properties. The positions of the built-in CelestialObjects (planets, sun, and moon) are determined by the planetary ephemeris defined in your User Preferences.
The script example below shows how to create a 3D View Viewpoint focused on a Spacecraft with the Earth as the tail reference, and add it to a ViewWindow.
