cylindrical coordinate -Gambit
i am doing a simulation of 3D problem.i want to draw it cylindrical coordinate sysyem(r,z, o).but gambit shows X , Y , Z Coordinate . how to do in cylindrical co ordinate , will it show r, z and o axis ?
i opened the Tools command button then i changed the co ordinated system to cylindrical and I acctivé it . but it still at cartesien coordinate

please reply

The display of coordinate system shouldn't change. I mean you are suppose to see the same (x;y;z) tri-axis.
But you can check coordinates of any vertex (while your cylindrical coordinate system is activated), and it should give correct values.
You can also try to split any edge with location, and if you pay attention, the local system should change to (r;t;z)
