I want to insert the UCS (x/y/z Axis icon) into a drawing view in my .idw -  Inventor

I need to show the axis directions on a view in my .idw file.

How can this be done?

You can show the origin and axis of a model in a drawing view by toggling the visibility (and include) in the browser. There's also GD&T features that would allow you to define datums. Also, there are ordinate dimension that will allow you to define an origin for each view. See the image below, it has all of the above listed items shown in one view.




Hope that helps.
