Default Tilting vectors?

In Aspire, can I use as two rails, two vectors that are tilted with respect to each other?
Example: Vector A is a U-shaped vector, and is the inner vector. Vector B is a U-shaped vector, and is the outer vector. Can I tilt Vector A (say 10 degrees) from a pivot point, and then use it as a drive rail with Vector B? If so, I need some help to figure it out.

Thank you,

Kurt

"Tilt"... as in the Z direction? If so, a way to accomplish this is to create a simple model that has the desired tilt (A triangle projected along a 2-rail sweep 90 orthogonal to the U shaped 2-rail sweep) and merge ('add' mode) the U shaped model created with that sloped model.

Of course, I could be completely misunderstanding your question.

Generally speaking, components are tilted, vectors are rotated. If you want to rotate a vector use the rotate tool on the drawing tab. You can set the pivot point anywhere you like. Instructions for setting the pivot point are at the top of the dialogue box.

This question might be better answered on the Vectric forum.
