Temporary Axis

Every cylindrical & conical face has an axis. Temporary axis are those created implicitly by cones & cylinders within the model. You can set the default to either hide or show all temporary axes. The benefit of this is that you don’t have to create them & you can turn them off as soon as you are done, saving time in the design process.

Control the visibility of temporary axes using one of the following:

  • Hide/Show Items > View Temporary Axes
  • View Temporary Axes (View toolbar) 
  • View > Temporary Axes
