Edit: lomateron talked about velocity and not force => Alvaro

 

You are talking about torque, and yes, 3 axis are more than enough, in fact, every possible rotation in 3d can be described as a rotation around a single vector (axis). This is very helpful, because you can compress a rotation into a vector and an angle. The mathematically construct of this is called quaternion.
