Multiple Viewport Windows

You can open as many 3D viewports as you require for your modelling task. A new 3D viewport is created by selecting Window→New Viewport from the main menu. A very common configuration is a single viewport for navigating the scene as well as a four viewport configuration with a perspective, top, front, and side view. By pressing SPACE you can maximize the current viewport. Similarly, the previous viewport configuration is restored by pressing SPACE again.

By sharing a camera between viewports but having different rendering modes or layer visibility, you can very easily compare side to side e.g. shapes and generated models. While sharing a camera between viewports, camera changes in one viewport affect the other viewport and vice versa.
