How to move origo ?

Hello

How to move origo ?

  • I have a model that is far away from its origo (see picture)
  • Will changing the origo change model's position in assembly ?

How is the part positioned in the assembly?

 

Regards

Use Menu > Format > WCS > orient. Use Reference CSYS as WCS. It will orient the WCS at the selected point/location. But it will not move the datum CSYS. If you needed to move it also, Double click the CSYS and select the reference as WCS and hit OK. CSYS datum point (origin) will move with datum CSYS.

 

Make sure it should not impact the feature associativity in part navigator or assembly constraints if Datum CSYS is used as reference.

Hi,

 

This probably happened when you created a new component in the context of an assembly and then made it the work part and started modeling. The origin of the component is probably at the origin of the assembly.

Next time, use move component to move the empty component closer to where you want to model.

 

If you used WAVE and everything is depending on WAVE links, then you can use move component to move the component (its origin) to where you want it in the assembly. It looks like the component is moved far away, but the WAVE link update and snap back to where you modeled. 

 

If you did not use WAVE then you will need to move the bodies in the part to the origin first. After that it depends on whether you have assembly constraints positioning the component or not. If there are assembly constraint then the component will snap back to where it was.

If there are no assembly constraints then you will have to manually move the component to the correct position because the body in the component will now be close to the origin of the assembly. For this you use 'move object'.
