Hello, very new to dimension here. I notice on the grid you can access and move objects by coordinates. However, the grid isn't the traditional cartesian system, the Z axis is where the Y axis should be. Is there a way to change the layout? I haven't been able to find an answer.
the cartesian system is for 2D not 3D... there is no UI option to change the Y into X but it is easy to code if you want the hack the software
Can you share an capture and show how you determine that?. That can help to understand problem, Curious glitch by the way..
@Ares Hovhannesyan are you asking me?
the cartesian system is very old way to plot 2D space into a graph [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cartesian_coordinate_system] but it assumes only 2 plots and doesn't work in 3D space
to make anything in 3D you need at least 3 plots with x normally shown as the horizontal and y as vertical then you add z for depth ... the issue is this is not actually a standard and some systems have z as the horizontal and x as depth, which really just means they are looking at the object from a different angle and doesn't effect the outcome in any way
what @John5E47 is asking for is a way to change X into Z on Dimensions plot system which just means the labels themselves and nothing else
Yes, X axis is fine, the depth Z axis is where the Y axis should be. I'm an engineer and work a lot with plots and graphs. I was looking to try to recreate some in 3D and maybe animate them. Issue is all my work is in the standard system and stopping to translate Y into Z or Z into Y is maddening, it also throws off what I'm doing if I miss one. Its hard to translate.
3D is a wild west of software with few standards... You can ask for a option to edit the UI in the uservoice forum which is hidden under the 'give us feedback' link, it would be easy to implement so perhaps the Dev team will add it
