I'm definitely a newbie here, I've only completed the first class, PC-DMIS Cad.

So, I'm a little stumped when I try to get cad=part to an iges model that has the y-plus in the cmm's z-plus orientation. That is, I've tried various combinations of aquiring points with the CMM set in Z-Plus, or Y-Plus, and aligning with various orientations, but I can't get the aquired points to lie on the part after I press cad=part.

Also, the pc-dmis manual is kind of light on explanation in this area.

If my Iges y-plus is the plan view (see attached jpeg), and the part is face up on the cmm, do I still have the cmm set for z-plus as I aquire a plane and two lines to align it.? Do I level the plane to Y-plus even thought the points were aquired with the cmm set to z-plus?
