X-axis, the orientation is the angle that the axis has. I don't let the same value (0) when your mesh is moving the orientation changes.

you mean it is relevant to relationships between local coordinate system and the global coordinate system?

anyone could make the conception clear?

I got the CG x, y and z values using "mass properties" command in "analysis tools" in Ansys, but not able to get the CG orientation value. Please complete this thread by specifying the answer.
