Use UCS Presets

May 20, 2011

     ZWCAD lets you select a preset UCS. The six planes defined by looking along the x,y,z axes align the UCS with the top, left, front, bottom, right, or back, based on either the WCS or the current UCS in effect when you select the tool. You can also select the previous UCS, align the UCS to the current view, or select the WCS.

     When you select a UCS, the cursor orientation and UCS icon change to reflect the new UCS.

     The display does not change, however, unless you select the Change View To Plan View Of The Selected UCS check box.

      After you align the UCS to a preset UCS, you can use "Named UCS" from the Tools menu to save the current UCS.


To select a preset UCS

  1.   Choose Tools > Named UCS.

  2.   Choose Orthographic UCS tab and select the desired UCS, then click Set Current button.

  3.   Click OK button.
