Axes Coordinates File Format


All coordinates are in Master Units.
For sections [X], [Y], [Z], [Rays], [Arcs] next row format is used:
 Axis ID (may be empty if axis is not node for another axes)
 Parent axis ID (link to axis ID, if empty then for coordinates origin point is used)
 Label  axis displayed name
 Coordinate for axis, for arcs  radius, for rays  angle in degrees
 Attributes, comma separated:
inv  axis is invisible
iso  axis coordinate is used for displaying in isometric views
...any attributes may be added in future  Comment (usually for displaying in tooltips)
Data row headers:
ustation 3daxes coord file v2 
First file string 
[Origin] 
The center of coordinates
The following string should contain (X, Y, Z) coordinates for the axes origin

[Description] 
Description of axes system
(using of this header will be added in future)

[Rotation] 
Axes rotation
This string contains axes system rotation angle about origin point and Z axis

[Direction] 
Radial axes system direction
This string contains reference angle for all angles in system

[Overhang] 
Axes overhang
This string contains distance from axis end point to nearest perpendicular axis

[X] 
X axes coordinates.
Strings contains axis data, format see below

[Y] 
Y axes coordinates.
Strings contains axis data, format see below

[Z] 
“level” axes.
Strings contains axis data, format see below

[Rays] 
Ray axes.
Strings contains ray data, format see below

[Arcs] 
Arcs or circles in radial axes system.
Strings contains arc/circle data, format see below

You can use CSV files examples for editing which are in the archive with 3D Axis application.
Axes coordinates file looks like the following text:

It is recommended to use Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice for file's editing. For example if you will open *.CSV file with Microsoft Excel, it will look like:
