Okay, so I realize that my last question probably didn't make too much sense. I was able to translate a point from my body to the SW origin. This accomplished my need. Earlier, I was thinking that I needed to translate the centroid of the body to the SW origin, but like I said, I'm a bit of a SW newbie. Thanks
A longer path to a fix...
After importing, create a coordinate system in line with how you want to import your part. Export again, specifying your new coordinate system in the save options. The new export will reimport in the desired position.
This way you won't have stray move-copy feature in your tree.
One of the few cases where SW coordinate systems are good for mre than decoration.
I never thought this was possible. Thanks for all the methods.
as a machinist i get this all the time, just put it in an assembly...easest way to get it where you want it!
another thing is does it really matter if the part isn't where you want it? the company sent it to you from an assembly, now if they send you a new file, you would have to do it all over again.
