I am having a little trouble controlling the way the drawing tools align themselves by default. To explain- I am following tutorials which require me to draw a circle so that the face is flat in line with the red and blue axis so that I can pull it up to create a base for the chess piece I am modelling. For some reason, every time I open the circle tool, it locks its plane to the green axis so that it’s face is in line with the green axis.
I can use an existing flat surface as a reference, holding shift to lock it to get around this. How do I choose what plane it is drawn on without doing this, if there were no other surfaces to reference for example?
Just trying to get a firm grasp of the basics here.
Thanks in advance.
