The Model-Editor is the view of the General-Assembly for your model. There is only one Model-Editor.
The Reference Triad shows the Global XYZ-axes.
The direction of each axis uses the right-hand rule. The:
•thumb finger points to the positive X direction
•index finger points to the positive Y direction
•middle finger points to the positive Z direction, normal to the X and Y directions
There are three(3) fixed Planes. They are the:
•Front Plane, which is co-planar with the Global XY-axes
•Top Plane, which is coplanar with the Global ZX-axes
•Right Plane, which is coplanar with the Global YZ-axes
Graphic-Area : shows the fixed Planes (and other Planes that you add to the model), the Reference Triad, and the Solid elements that you add to the model.
Model toolbar : this toolbar is to the left of the graphic-area
Name-tab : the default name of the Model-Editor is Model
The Model elements toolbar has two commands that you can use in the Model-Editor.
The two commands are also in the Add menu.
Model elements toolbar - Add Plane, and Add Mechanism-Editor.
You can add Planes that are offset from one of the three fixed Planes - see Add Plane
You must add a minimum of one Mechanism-Editor to a Plane - see Add Mechanism
You do most of your modelling in Mechanism-Editors.
