  • Rescale Axis

    How do I rescale the part axis?

    I need to have the positive "X" Axis for the machine going in the opposite direction.

    Thanks

        About changing the X axis on the cad instead?

          I guess I should have clarified my initial comments. Depending on what you are trying to accomplish there are problably 5 different ways to do something like this. Which one you use will depen on why you want to accomplish this.

          The easiest is probably do it in your alignment like bw said but it depends on what you are trying to do.

            I thought I might be able to do it through the alignment. However, I am not having much luck. The part needs to be inverted (upside down to the cad model) when sitting on the cmm. So I changed the Z+ level to Z-, but then the X Axis is reversed.

              ..just rotate it 180 Deg back to where you want it...

                Simply work from the back side of your CAD and you shouldn't have to change anything. Pick up the side that is up and align to that. Best bet would probably be an iterative alignment to get you going quickly.
