Hi

I don't think there is one, what kind of visualisation were you expecting from a 2D plot of a rotating axis?

If you enter G1 X10 A720 F30 or similar in the MDI window, you will see the tool wrap around the X axis over the distance set.
This is the simulation of a rotating axis, as a rotating line would just look as if it was not moving.

As you rotate the axis you might see the tool cone rotate on the screen.
It is also possible to get this effect: www.linuxcnc.org/index.php/english/forum...s-on-cylinders#40497

The trick is to have a GEOMETRY entry in the [DISPLAY] section of the INI.
www.linuxcnc.org/docs/html/config/ini_co...#sub:DISPLAY-section

You probably want to have AXYZ or XYZA but other options exist..
