M. To move the model origin
To shift the translate the entire model by shifting the origin location along a vector, use the following procedure.
On the Geometry ribbon tab, select the
The tool in the Move Origin dialog opens.
Specify the origin offset vector method:
Vector method Do the following… two nodes select the By distance between following two nodes and then type the node numbers in the corresponding fields. global axes components select the By the following X, Y and Z values and then type the global axes component distances in the corresponding fields.A positive value in the coordinates (or resulting positive value resulting the from the selected nodes) will move the origin in a positive direction along the corresponding global axis. Thus, the resulting coordinate of each node is therefore reduced by that same magnitude.
Note: For example, providing a origin shift along the X axis of 5 units, means that a node previously located at the origin now has an X coordinate of -5 units.
