Drawing - Show additional axis system

Drawing - Show additional axis system

Drawing - Show additional axis system

When modeling in Catia and using more than one axis, is there a way to get the additional axis in the drawing view? It seems to show only the default. I'd like to know if it's possible to get others to show up as well.

Thank you in advance!

Not that I am aware of, we use a wire frame trihedron for initial pick up of each component sent to manufacturing.


RE: Drawing - Show additional axis system


You can show any axis system in the drawing view. The main idea is to define the axis system when creating the front view, it cannot be changed in any other view type:

-Create an additional axis system in 3D model (insert - axis system)
-Switch to drawing and create a new Front View
-Switch window to 3D model, first pick up the axis system, then pick up the reference plane. The view shows up with the selected axis. Also all further projections will use the selected axis.
