How can I relate a scissors hinge to a local axis system?

Answer

Scissors hinges can only be related to the global coordinate system. Thus, it is not possible to refer it to a local axis system.

However, it is also possible to refer the scissors hinge to a global rotated axis system (see Figure 1). To download an example of a rotated scissors hinge, use the link below.
