The red axes is x, the green axes is y and the blue axes is z. If you click on any of the red, green or blue arrows - red arrow is seen in the diagram - you can slide it along. When you slide an object on an axes a distance ruler will appear to show you how much you are moving your object by, and the co-ordinates of that axes.
