Triad manipulator not aligned to world axis?

Evan_ReeseEvan_Reese Member Posts: 2,066 PRO
The documentation defines triadManipulator() as "Create a manipulator represented by a triad of perpendicular arrows, aligned with the world axes, which specify a 3D position."
Is there a way to align it to another coordinate system, not aligned to the world axes? I'd like to not hack my own together out of 3 linear manipulators if I can help it.

    I think making your own triad manipulator of three linear ones is the only option. The good news is that you can make it a generic library function which you only need to make once and reuse everywhere.
