Axes Tool: Introduction

Axes tool introduction

Use the Axes tool to move, or reorient, the drawing axes within your model. For example, you might want to move the axes when you are constructing rectangular objects that are skewed relative to one another. Or, you might use this tool to allow for more accurate scaling of objects that are not oriented along the default coordinate planes. Activate the Axes tool from either the Construction Toolbar (Microsoft Windows), the Tool Palette (Mac OS X) or the Tools menu.
