Specifies the spindle angle in degrees. If the option AXIS is used the spindle axis can be specified: spindle axis X, spindle axis Y, or spindle axis Z. The Z-axis is the direction of the direct beam, and is normally not used. The X-axis is the axis in the horizontal plane, perpendicular to the direct beam, whereas the Y-axis is the axis in the vertical plane (and perpendicular to the direct beam).
