How to draw in three-dimensional coordinate system in Inkscape?

I want to create a drawing using a three-dimensional coordinate system in Inkskape. I am trying to re-create a drawing similar to the image below:

enter image description here

Right now, I am make three arrows and attach them manually to each other. I am wondering whether there is a more standard way of doing that in Inkscape, i.e., creating a frame in Inkscape with all three axis connected at the centre to form one entity.


Here is what I would do. This may already be what you are doing but to my knowledge there is no quicker way to do this:

  1. Draw a line pointing to the right (hold Ctrl).
  2. Draw a line pointing upwards (hold Ctrl).
  3. Draw a line pointing to the bottom right (or whereever you want).
  4. Enable snapping and snap to cusp nodes.
  5. Move the lines together until they snap.
  6. Select all lines and add arrow heads (in the stroke style dialogue).
  7. If desired, group (Ctrl+G) or combine (Ctrl+K).
