Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Dynamically changing the UCS, part of AutoCAD 2013: 3D.
In this lesson you will learn how to use AutoCAD's Dynamic UCS mode to …conveniently draw objects on the surfaces of other objects. …Open the Concept 4 project file, and then go down to the Status bar and click this …icon to allow Dynamic UCS. Then draw an object. …Click the Rectangle tool on the Draw panel. …Position the cursor over this wall, and notice that the axes change so that the …red and green axes are now oriented with respect to this surface.…
Click two points to draw a rectangle, and then orbit by holding down Shift and …dragging the mouse wheel. And you'll see that the rectangle is …indeed on that surface. Zoom into this pyramid, click the Circle …tool, hover the cursor over this surface, and click two points. …You'll see that the circle is flush with that face. …So Dynamic UCS really does two things. It moves the origin point of the UCS to …the surface, and it also reorients the UCS to be aligned with the surface.…
