About Custom Gnomons
A gnomon is a 3D symbol for an absolute XYZ coordinate system. It provides a reference to understand the orientation of objects in the view. You can create a custom gnomon to provide an additional, graphical reference. Define a gnomon from any model OL (*.ol) file. You can select a gnomon from a library of any number of custom gnomons. The gnomon is not saved to the PVZ (*.pvz) structure file.
In Creo View, you can apply, define, modify, and delete gnomons. In Creo View Lite and Creo View Express, you can only turn on or off the gnomon applied by another user.
