How to use and move the UCS to draft on any surface in 3-D
« on: October 09, 2016, 03:45:08 pm »
This tutorial explains what the USC is (the USER COORDINATE SYSTEM) in AutoCAD and shows how handy it can be when working in 3-D! By manipulating the UCS and setting up a GRID for your file you can keep track of where you are in space and where your ground plane is. Most importantly, you can draft in any location in space!

This tutorial explores the WORLD UCS tool (which always brings you "home" to the ground plane's default position), the 3-POINT UCS tool (which allows you to move the UCS to any plane so that you can draft on any side of any object), and the VIEW UCS tool (which positions the UCS parallel to the present view).
