It work off a simplified idea of the x,y & z axis. They are instead labeled as left right up down and front back. If you just get the ez it has a set of templates built in that you can enter your dimensions and it will calculate your tooling and material and give you a set of bend locations. If you get ez 3d or pro you have the templates as well as a 3d platform. To use the 3d assembly side you start with a origin (0,0,0) and the go from there. Each point is called a pickpoint. Once you have laid out your design you just connect the dots. It then lays out what you want with the provided tooling and material. Then you can select each part and make a cut sheet with the desired bend points. I have found this program to be extremely accurate. Also I almost entirely use the 3d side of the program.

Goodluck
