Working with coordinates - Using three-dimensional coordinates

Entering x,y,z-coordinates

When working in three dimensions, you can specify x,y,z-coordinates as absolute distances in relation to the origin (the 0,0,0 coordinate point at which the three axes intersect) or as relative coordinates based on the last point selected. For example, to specify a point 3 units along the positive x-axis, 4 units along the positive y-axis, and 2 units along the positive z-axis, specify the coordinate 3,4,2.
