Hello,

is it possible to move the origin (xyz ref) for a part and to use it after that as 0 point?

CAD or CAM?

It's possible in both.

In CAD, right-mouse click on any User defined datum plane to make it become the local origin. This is generally used temporarily and you can have as many datums as required. If you just want the Global origin to be in a different place relative to the model, move the model. By setting-up a local datum on the model first, you can move the model using the command "from datum to datum", thus the move can be a re-orientation at the same time. In CAM, you can create a User defined Frame (= datum plane set), and this can be selected as the origin for all (or just some) operations.

Dorin,

Sorry this has gone unanswered. Please Skype ray.grubb.sr on Monday and he can show you how to use "FRAMES"

If Ray has the time to do that, it would be good to show all the forum members rather than just the one. Perhaps a brief movie Ray?

Ray made the time. See the attachment. You can setup the Datum plane in either CAD or CAM.
The key thing to remember is you never have to re-orient a part for CAM. Use FRAMES.
