Using a preset user coordinate system

progeCAD lets you select a preset UCS. The six planes defined by looking along the x,y,z-axes align the UCS with the top, left, front, bottom, right, or back, based on either the WCS or the current UCS in effect when you select an icon in the User Coordinate Systems dialog box. You can also select the previous UCS, align the UCS to the current view, or select the WCS.

When you select a UCS, the cursor orientation and UCS icon change to reflect the new UCS. The display does not change, however, unless you select the Change View To Plan View Of The Selected UCS check box.

After you align the UCS to a preset UCS, you can use the progeCAD Explorer to save the UCS. To do this, in the progeCAD Explorer window, choose Edit > New > UCS, and then select Current.

To select a preset UCS

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > User Coordinate Systems.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the User Coordinate Systems tool ().
    • Type setucs and then press Enter.
  2. Under Set The Selected UCS Relative To, select either Current UCS to change to the new UCS by reorienting relative to the current UCS, or select World Coordinate System (WCS) to base the new UCS orientation on the WCS.
  3. Under Select UCS, click the button corresponding to the UCS you want as the new current UCS.

Methods for defining a user coordinate system

Define a UCS by specifying a new origin and points on the positive x- and y-axes
