    measuring between 2 coordinate systems

    John Wayman

      There must be a really simple answer to this, but I'm stumped:


      I have an assembly in which there are 2 part, each with their own reference csys. Neither csys is aligned to the origin of the assembly.

      I need to determine the transform between csys 1 and csys 2, in terms of the distance in X,Y and Z, where X,Y and Z are defined in csys 1 and the angles between the X directions, Y directions and Z directions of the 2 coordinate systems.


      So, I suppose I want to measure between the 2 points at the centres of the 2 coordinate systems and present the results of the measurement with reference to a specific csys, rather than with reference to the origin of the assembly.


      I am hoping it is harder to describe than to do, but I can't see a way to define the reference csys for the measure tool.
