x,y axes orientation on screen

Post by 2C3D4U »

Is there any way of having the Y axis run horizontal when Aspire boots? I frequently work with long rectangles in the order of 1.4 X 3.5 meters and having Y oriented vertically with a CNC machine that sees Y as the long axis is quite a nuisance. When I rotate the geometries to post, the considerable scale difference between X and Y makes the drawings awkward.

The pasty version:

View in Aspire---no. Can alter post processor to flip axes.

Hi,

This MIGHT be a possible solution for your viewing comfort after rotating your job layout vertically...

Some desktop monitors support physically rotating from “landscape orientation” to a “portrait orientation” (similar to your cell phone). If you have one (or purchase one), try rotating the monitor itself, then adjust the Vectric software window to “go vertical long-wise” to match the monitor after rotating your job.

For example, here is one model that can be pivoted from landscape to portrait orientation, as needed:

Belated thanks for your reply. If you see this, please explaing what is specifically entailed in "adjusting the Vectric softwarer window to "go vertical long-wise". Where is that option found? I've never tripped over it.

Thank you, anton
