creating multiple coordinate systems and making them visible

Hi all,

I need to create multiple (maybe 2 or 3) coordinate systems along my 3d objects relative to their main coordinate system and make them visible. For example in the cylinder.wrl file we have a coordinate system at the base of the cylinder and i need to create other 2 at the center and top of it and make them visible and their components (x,y,z) should be selectable.

would anyone be able to give me some hints?

thank you!

I would create a model that represents your coordinate system, with individual x,y,z sub-objects. You can then add these coordinate system nodes as children of your cylinder object, and position/rotate them relative to the cylinder. There is a tutorial in the docs called Hierarchical Models that shows how to add objects as children of other objects.
