When Meta is first opened, you are presented with the coordinate plane. If ever you have
done any graphing, you may recognize the plane. Meta is essentially a 3D graphing program
that reverses the process of graphing: you provide the lines and shapes, it figures out the
equations. Given that Meta is 3D, there are three axis.
This picture shows the coordinate plane at a distance, the y axis, the z axis, and the x axis.
In Tomb Raider, the z axis points upwards, so either the plane must be rotated when building
objects, or the objects must be built on their sides to allow them to be right-way-up when in the
game.
