To add a coordinate system
To add a new coordinate system to the model, use the following procedure.

By default, this UCS will be set at the global origin with no rotation. In other words, mapped directly to the Global Coordinate System, or WCS. Any of the coordinate systems may be translated or rotated with respect to the WCS.
