Coordinates for Cylindrical UCS
When a cylindrical coordinate system is active, you enter coordinates in the order R, T, Z, where:
R is the distance from the point to the Z axis.
T() is the angle in the counterclockwise direction between the T = 0 axis and the line connecting the point as projected onto the Z = 0 plane and the origin (enter in degrees).
Z is the distance along the Z axis.
The illustration below shows a location (A) in cylindrical coordinates:
Note that the T = 0 axis is the line along which T = 0 and Z = 0, and the T = 90 axis is the line along which T = 90 and Z = 0.
