Axis/plane y/z incorrect?

Hi there,

I have a small issue with my axis being in the incorrect orientation.

I noticed this doing an array. When prompted for the units in each direction, I typed the following:
Number in X direction <1>
Number in Y direction <10>
Number in Z direction <1>

However, the array ends up being in the Z direction instead.

My suspicion is either user error (missing something obvious), else an option/setting that I have screwed up.

Any thoughts?


I suspect you are not in the Top or Perspective viewport when running Array.
The command is prompting you for CPlane XYZ, not “World” XYZ.
The Top and Perspective default viewports have the same CPlane coordinate orientation as “World”.

Hi John,

Thank you so much for the response. That is it. It is so bleeding obvious I
missed it. Thank you.
