Default I am not able to trace EP curve on Y axis.

Hello Everyone!

I am the new kid on the block have some interest in modelling.

I have a question about the EP Curve which I could not find in the forums


I am trying to trace an EP curve on the Standing plane on Y axis, but the curve is always formed on X or Z axis. How can I draw the curve on Y axis?


Thank you all in advance!!

change to the front view or side view depending on which way your plane is facing to draw and you should be ok.

Thank you jsprogg!

I tried that, but it is still appearing on graph area. Changing angle did not help. I guess I am not able to follow your direction

I tried to add an image but it is not appearing

From the look of the picture, if you go into your side view you could trace it from there as jsprogg suggested.
