You can center the view direction inside the ArcScene 3D View preview window in ArcCatalog to look at specific locations inside your 3D data.
By default, the center of the view is the center of the data. The Navigation tool , Zoom In tool , Zoom Out tool , and Field Of View tool all change the view of the data relative to the current center of the view. If you want to zoom in to see a particular area, centering on it first will prevent it from zooming out of your field of view. Centering on a point also allows you to rotate the view around it.
Follow the steps to center the view direction inside the ArcScene 3D View preview window in ArcCatalog.
Be sure that you already have the ArcGIS 3D Analyst extension enabled and the 3D View Tools toolbar added to the display. The 3D View Tools toolbar can be added by clicking Customize > Toolbars > 3D View Tools.
