Define a local coordinate system for a group in Layout Manager

Define a local coordinate system for a group in Layout Manager

You can define a local coordinate systemcoordinate system that reflects the current work plane or drawing view plane

The local coordinate system is represented in a model by a symbol with three axes (x, y, and z). This symbol indicates the direction of the model. It is located in the lower right corner of the model view.

In a drawing, the local coordinate system symbol has two axes.

for each group in Layout Manager. Local coordinate systems may be relative to a municipal monument or to the local project site datum. In many cases, models may already be properly placed so that no local coordinate system needs to be defined.

  1. On the Manage tab, click Layout manager.
  2. Select a group.
  3. Define the coordinates using the Group local coordinate system options:
    1. Click the Pick button next to the Location box and pick the origin in the model.
    2. Click the Pick button next to the Axis X box and set the x direction in the model.
    3. Click the Pick button next to the Axis Y box and set the y direction in the model.
  4. Click Set.
Note:

You can set the work planeplane that the user has chosen in a model and that is currently active for working on in a model view

Newly created, copied, or moved model objects comply with the work plane. For example, shifting the work plane to follow a sloped plane makes it easier to model sloped structures.

using a suitable Workplane command on the View tab. When you have set the work plane, select a group in Layout Manager. Click the Pick button next to the Use current work plane option under Group local coordinate system and click Set.
