  • Working with models

    I have a model with several subassy's. none of the subassy's have the same origin as the main part. Does anyone else have this problem and how do you deal with it.

    Do you mean that the individual parts do NOT make the assemble in the cad file (ie top piece is 500 mm to the left of the assembly) or do you mean that all the individual parts don't have an XYZ zero point on them?

      Their X, Y, Z zero points are all different. but the parts are mated.

        Then you are ready to check them all in relationship to the assembly. You do NOT need an XYZ zero point on a model (or part) to check it. You simply check it to the datums called out and the values of those datums, no matter what they might be.

          It seems you may have a limitation with CAD = Part. I suggest you align the part "offline" style.

            If you have access the the CAD software.
            just open the assembly and export all the parts and sub-assemblies you need out in your assembly coordinate system.
            Then as you merge the files into PC D-MIS, they all fall into place.
