Making a coordinate system

Press coordinate system toolbar button

or use menu command Insert->CoordinateSystem->Absolute or as View direction

When you give the toolbar command Coordinate System Dialog will appear, where you can make an Absolute coordinate system, a coordinate system where z axis will be directed as view normal or a custom coordinate system by origin Z direction and X point.

When you press Center , Z axis , Point for X axis button :
You should define the following sequentially

  • Origin point
  • Z axis direction for coordinate system
  • A point that will define the X axis ( from origin to that point will be the direction for X axis)

Once you accomplish all these selection cycles a coordinate system will be made and added to the graphics window and tree view. You may hide the coordinate systems by giving a hide command from the tree view context menu on CoordinateSystem folder.
