Defining and naming user coordinate systems

A drawing can contain as many coordinate systems as you want and can be named appropriate names so you can remember how they are used in your drawing for recalling them later.


NOTE Coordinate system names created or renamed in progeCAD can have up to 31 characters and cannot include spaces. progeCAD will, however, display longer coordinate system names and names containing spaces, such as coordinate systems created in AutoCAD 2000.


To define new user coordinate systems in the progeCAD Explorer

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > Explore Coordinate Systems.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the Explore Coordinate Systems tool ().
    • Type expucs and then press Enter.
  2. Do one of the following
    • Choose Edit > New > UCS.
    • Click the New Item tool ().
    • With your cursor in the right pane of the window, right-click to display the shortcut menu, and choose New > UCS.
  3. Select a method from the prompt box or command bar by which to define the UCS in the drawing window.
  4. For example, select 3 Point and then specify three points in the drawing window to define the x, y, and z axes for your coordinate system.
  5. Type the name for the new user coordinate system by typing over the highlighted default text, and then press Enter.
  6. To complete the command, close the window.
