Which is the best way to move a part along the X Y Z axis by a specified dimension?
I'm looking to move a part along the XYZ axis to show the movement of this part in various ways. I have tried to translate but this way is a little messy and ideally I'd like to quickly see the changes.
e.g. move 'Part1' 0.5mm along X axis - then move 'Part1' -1mm along Z axis
Translate command is good for this. But if you dont like it, you will use "Axis System" command.
Here is the tutorial.
Put the system Compas on your part, then click the part on the product tree so the desired move part is highlighted. Right click the compas and choose 'Edit'.
Now you can manipulate the part (rotate or translate) according to your desire measurement
