# discretize.TensorMesh.reference_is_rotated#

property TensorMesh.reference_is_rotated#

Indicate whether mesh uses standard coordinate axes.

The standard basis vectors defining the x, y, and z axes of a mesh are $$(1,0,0)$$, $$(0,1,0)$$ and $$(0,0,1)$$, respectively. However, the orientation property can be used to define rotated coordinate axes for our mesh.

The reference_is_rotated property determines whether the mesh is using standard coordinate axes. If the coordinate axes are standard, mesh.orientation is the identity matrix and reference_is_rotated returns a value of False. Otherwise, reference_is_rotated returns a value of True.

Returns
bool

False is the mesh uses the standard coordinate axes and True otherwise.
