The compass is a tool that helps you orient and place objects.
- [Instructor] Here I want to discuss the compass.…As you can see, the compass is currently…nested on its, what's called perch.…The compass is a very large subject of discussion.…And I'm going to keep it brief,…but I need you to understand a certain key few elements…to the compass, so that when you look at it,…you understand what the compass is telling you.…As I talked about briefly before,…you can adjust and manipulate your graphics window…using the compass by using your first mouse button,…grabbing one of the arms, or vectors…on that compass, to adjust the screen.…
You can also grab one of the planes.…Again, just holding down your first mouse button…you can see I can pan based off of that plane.…Now currently, as the compass sits on its perch,…you're going to notice the X, Y, Z are oriented…to absolute X, Y, Z.…With this little red block at the very bottom…of the compass, if I grab that and drag the compass down…and drop it on to one of the parts somewhere in the screen,…you'll notice the orientation of the compass changes.…
