XYZ axis directions

Hi all!

 

I'm pretty new to Fusion 360. I confused in axis directions. Looks like they work differently or I missed something.

Default modeling orientation: Z up. I assume that positive direction shown by color line (red, green, blue).

 

I wrote a script which draw a wing airfoil from DAT file on selected construction plane or origin.

Airfoil chord is along X axis from leading edge at zero and trailing edge at defined length.

Airfoil thickness along Y axis. Top surface up (positive) and bottom surface down (negative).

 

When I change planes (or TOP, FRONT, RIGHT views) I would expect the same picture with the same airfoil.

In fact I have all of them different. Below three screenshots from different views.

 

XY plane (TOP) looks like I expected.

XZ plane (FRONT) - up and down swapped.

YZ plane (RIGHT) - rotated clockwise on 90 degrees

How I can change this behavior?

Thanks!
