What do you mean about ''not show properly'' ?
Don''t you understand the difference between perspective
and orthographic view ?
Perspective looks for a human eye like correct. When an object
is near, it''s bigger. When it''s far away, it''s smaller.
In orthographic projection, the distance of the object form the viewer does not affect the size of the projected object.
For example when you take a map, the distance of two points
is the same, no metter how high the point is.
