Is there a standard block showing the x, y, and z axes that I could insert into an isometric view?
To clarify my question:
I have an isometric view of an assembly on a drawing showing an object with lifting rigging attached. I would like to display the x-y-z coordinate axis in this drawing view at the point where the crane hook attaches (this point is not the origin point of the model). I will use this view in a text document.
Is there a standard block showing coordinate axes that could be inserted into the isometric view to serve this purpose?
As for a standard "block" - not that I'm aware of, however you could add a point in the Assembly and show that in the drawing, with your notes
you can insert a coordinate system at that point
Thanks Ken! That is exactly what I am looking for. Did you sketch the axes and labels and make a block, or is this a SolidWorks technique/function that I am not familiar with?

I have a related question:
I was able to display the coordinate axes in my model and my drawing views. Thanks for the help!
I convert the drawing view into a .PNG file to insert into a MS Word document. When I convert the drawing view into the .PNG file, the axes do not appear.
I use the Grayscale setting, and my resoltion is 1440 DPI.
Does anyone have experience with this?
Do you have Coordinate Systems turned on in drawing?
