Enter Values for WCS Origin

Creator
Creator

Does anyone know if it's possible to enter a value for XYZ of the WCS?

 

For instance, if I activate dynamic WCS and snap the origin to the corner of a block, I would like to then be able to type in an absolute Z value of zero; basically, X and Y would remain on the corner of the block but the Z axis would be set to absolute zero. 

 

Currently, activating one of the axis handles results in a window that will allow you to type in an offset, I would think it would be easy enough to add an absolute field to this.

If I am understanding what you want, use Menu-> Format-> WCS-> Origin.

 

Then, select the corner of the block to grab the X and Y.

 

You can then type any Z value you want.

Thanks Ron. This will work. I was hoping to have this somewhat integrated into Menu-Format-WCS-Dynamics to save a step. But for those times I really need it this will work. Thanks for the help.
