3D object location on Z axis?

Recommended Posts

When I create a 3d object in plan view, how can I move it precisely along the 3D axis without dragging it in the front or side views?

I'll select a 3D object and when I look in the object info palette, I see no information describing its position along the Z-axis.

Also, in the duplicate array box, there is no option to duplicate along the Z-axis. Is it possible to duplicate along the Z-axis?

Use the Move 3D command from the Tool menu or Ctrl Alt M shortcut and specify the Z height requirement.

Object Info palette will only allow you to edit the 3D objects size not position in the Z axis.

To create duplicates in the Z axis you would need to view from Front position and then use Duplicate Array treating Y values as Z information.

Hope that helps.
