Hi Jordan,
Currently Chimera does not have a "show axes" function, but if you  
open the attached file in Chimera, it generates a model showing the  
axes X, Y, and Z with red, yellow, and blue arrows, respectively.   
This is in the BILD file format, in which it is pretty easy to change  
the colors, dimensions, etc. of the objects.

BILD format description:

I hope this helps,
