Why can't an orthographic camera scale

I don’t know why my view is so strange. What I want to see is an orthographic box, but at the moment I only see two lines and my camera can’t zoom

Hello and welcome to the BJS community, @olivia_chris!

Okay, so the thing with Ortho cameras is that there’s no foreshortening effect due to distance - far objects appear equally sized as near ones, all else equal. The scales you adopt for the ortho camera effectively establish a bounding box for the frustum of the camera, so the position of the camera matters (as do min and maxZ) but the scale defines what you see and how big it is
