Setting the Axis Lock Direction

If the tool is perpendicular to a 2D path, the Axis Lock Direction is set by default. For 3D paths and 2D paths where the tool axis is not perpendicular to the path, the Axis Lock Direction needs to be defined. Axis Lock Direction can be defined by the direction of edges, feature axes, coordinate system axes, or planes.
