The coordinate system is essential in the context of 3D. For 3D, it is important to define the direction of 3 coordinate axes: x, y, z. In physical world, when looking at an object we think width, height and depth. Understanding how x, y, z map onto the concept of width, height and depth is the foundation of the coordinate system. The VividWorks 3D configurator uses the 'right-hand rule'. Have your hand so that the right-hand thumb is pointed up and the rest of the fingers are curved naturally. Keeping your hand like this, when you point the thumb towards the positive direction of the axis you consider rotation, your other fingers will point towards the positive rotation direction.
