coordinate input, you can use several coordinate system entry methods.
You can also use a movable coordinate system, the user coordinate system
(UCS), for convenient coordinate entry and to establish workplanes.
- Overview of Coordinate Entry
- Enter 2D Coordinates
and relative 2D Cartesian and polar coordinates determine precise
locations of objects in a drawing.
- Enter 3D Coordinates
Cartesian, cylindrical, or spherical
coordinates locate points when you are creating objects in 3D.
- Understand the User Coordinate System
You can relocate and rotate
the user coordinate system for convenient coordinate entry, grid
display, grid snap, Ortho mode, and other drawing tools.
- Control the Display of the
User Coordinate System Icon
To help visualize the
current orientation of the user coordinate system, you can display
the user coordinate system icon. Several versions of this icon are
available, and you can change its size, location, and color.
