Extra Axis

What is this small extra set of origin lines that appears from time to time in Rhino? I’ve seen it several times over the years and have never managed to work out what it is, nor how to get rid of it.

I’m sure there is a simple explanation but I’ve never managed to work it out. It just bugs me that I can’t get rid of it.

it is maybe a named CPlane? Type _NamedCPlane to open the Named CPlanes dialog, if there is one or more CPlanes in the list, double click in the empty white space to unselect it and the widget of this CPlane might disappear.



Thanks, Clement. You’re bang on - it is a named cplane. I’m a little embarrassed that I didn’t manage to work that out for myself!

I habitually switch back to the World Top cplane after using another, but it seems that the little axis remains visible if you have the named cplane palette open (indicating which cplane is selected in the list, makes sense).

I know what it is now and how to hide it, thanks again for your help.
