    How do I reverse the orientation of the perspective gride?

      Hi - Totally new to the persepctive grid (CS5), and playing around with it.

       

      I was wondering if there was a quick and easy way to "mirror" the perspective grid? Say I'm looking directly a small rectangular box (say 13 cm wide x 4 cm high x 9 cm deep). I create a perspective grid:

       

      • 3 point perspective to see top, front, and edge of box
      • units in cm
      • scale 1:1
      • viewing angle: 10 deg.
      • viewing distance 40 cm.
      • horizon height 10 cm
      • third vanish point: 0 x -30 y

       

      So I get a very nice looking grid, as if I was viewing the box from left of center (so that I am looking at the front and left edge of the box - or right orange gridge = front and left blue grid = left edge)

       

      Is there an easy way to "mirror" the perspective - so that it would appear that I was viewing the box from right of center (so that I am looking at the front and right edge of the box, so that left blue grid = front, and right orange grid = right edge of box)?

       

      I'm not sure what numbers I have to reverse to do this.

       

      TIA for any help for a noob.
