Hard to pan, zoom, rotate small models

im trying to model an iPhone that’s set to its actual size, roughly 5” x 2”, and at this size it’s almost impossible to navigate around the object. I tried applying scale and applying scale to deltas-no luck. Maybe I need to reposition the origin point?

Any ideas?

If you have a full scale keyboard (with a number pad) try the “.” key in the numpad. I am not sure what menu it is in, but that is the shortcut for recenter view to object. Typically that is how I work on very small, or very large, objects. Let me know if this helps.

Orthographic mode can help navigation a lot with small objects

might need to change some of user pref to make it easier
