UCS - User Coordinate System in AutoCAD 2010
 
To work in AutoCAD 2010 it is necessary to know the features of the UCS (User
Coordiunate System) and work with it because without the knowledge of how to set
the UCS almost impossible to work in AutoCAD 2010

Here is I will not describe all the icons (buttons) for positioning the UCS but only
some most important.

First, we must distinguish between the ORIGIN command that locks and unlocks the
positioning of the UCS (the same on and off in the View => Display => UCS icon =>
ORIGIN).
When the option is active Origin (has a check mark next to them) then we are
"locked" position UCS and USC will always be displayed on the site plan that we set
it up, no matter how zoomed in view of the working window drawings, unless the
parking spot when zoom (magnification views of the drawing) goes out of the
window frame work, then we will be UCS displayed in the lower left corner of the
window.
If we excluded the Origin option then we will be running the UCS in the lower left
corner of the window. Depending upon in any way we work will vary and UCS (2D,

3D Virewframw, 3D Realistic Visual Style or 3D Conceptual Visual Style)

If we moved the UCS work flow and want to go back to the starting position then
using icons World UCS (2​​) We can do the same and the UCS will be positioned in the
lower left corner of a window. We have this icon on both Toolbar toolbar (UCS and
UCS II). When you position the mouse pointer over the icon will show you her name.

Use one of the first icons (1) on the toolbar UCS UCS UCS positioning by clicking on
the icon labeled UCS followed the direction of the X axis and then in a direction Y
axis at any point. The first way to determine the position of the X axis (in this case
the Origin should be included, then checkmark next to View. (View => Display =>
UCS icon => ORIGIN). Observe activity functions ORTHO and SNAP.

If Ortho is turned on then you will not be able to position UCS angle and if the
function SNAP then you will not be able to position the starting point exactly where
you want it to AutoCAD 2010 for Snap-step and constantly dodging your precise
intent. It looks like this

ROTATE UCS using the button shown in the picture below.

In the event that the UCS rotated at an angle and turn Ortho mode then all drawing
lines follow the X-axis and Y (imagine that you just rotate the paper on which you
draw in 2D).
If you want the UCS back to the starting position, click on the WCS (World).

Use the icon of 3 (see toolbar UCS) Origin positioning the UCS in particular point
(Origin active - pegs included) by first clicking on the icon and then on a particular
point, and UCS will we be positioned at the respective point in the plane, now it can
rotate on the axis X or Y or Z.
Use the icon of 4 (see toolbar UCS) Z-Axis Vector we use the 3D drawing UCS
positioning by clicking on the icon and then on the point that we want to set the
UCS hold the left mouse button and then determine the direction of the Z axis so
that the mouse pointer retreat in the direction of the Z axis and click to end. It
looks like this step by step.

Use the icon of 5, 3 Point  we use the 3D drawing UCS positioning by clicking on the
icon and then on the point that we want to set the UCS and then click on the second
point and then to the third point (take care about the direction of the Counter
Clockwise). It looks like step by step (screenshots are from AutoCAD 2007).

These three icons (button, X, Y, Z) is used by us to rotate the UCS about a particular
axis. Each separately. We have positioned the UCS in 3D drawing, click on the icon
and then the axis around which we want to rotate the UCS, for example around the
Y axis and then determine the angle of rotation (taking into account the direction of

the Counter - Clockwise). I'm here in the pictures below UCS rotated around the Y
axis by 75 degrees in the opposite direction from clockwise so that we can raise Z
axis (out of plane) to 75 degrees and at the same time and the Z axis to rotate 75
degrees because rotation performed around the Y axis (note the thumbnail picture
below shows where the rotation around the Y axis green). Before rotating, just
imagine the opposite direction clockwise when viewing the Y axis from the top, as if
you see him at one point while the X-axis and Z see at right angles.

Of course, should the UCS position at the top of the compound yellow line (using
OSNAP and endpoint), but I'm UCS risen to more easily detected rotation) .
So if you need to draw the following lines UCS need to position themselves for a
point in the plane and then just rotate the UCS and move on with the drawing, just
so you will be planes and lines to tie one to the other unless you just want to rise
following line above the top yellow line).
