How to interpret the ruler in manipulator, pushpull.

Sometimes when using the manipulator or pushpull, I get it to do the opposite direction of what I intended. For a while, I thought that moving the component past where it is in a given direction allowed one to enter a positive value for distance in that direction, but that doesn't work reliably. Then I though that possibly the coordinate system determined the positive and negative direction but that isn't reliable either.

So, what's the secret to specifying a direction?


  • I get that too sometimes. Great question. Hey, @Anthony Apostolaros any guidance on this?
  • This is a duplicate question. It was answered elsewhere.

    When I posted the question, the web site gave me an error and told me to wait to try again. I did so and it resulted in a duplicate post.

    The answer, BTW, is non intuitive.

  • @RoatanBill awesome. I'll look into it to find the response.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
