      Hi,

       

      Is it possible to have two origin create in a part? If possible, how to go about placing the origin? Thanks!

       

      Regards

      Lena

          Hi ,

          First thing that why you need Two origin in one part? Requirement?

           

          You can have n number of coordinate system, follow the link below to create this..

           

          Co ordinate

           

          Thanks

            Lena,

             

            In SolidWorks, the origin stays in place. If you need to move the part relative to the origin, use the "move/copy body" command to move the body relative to the origin. Thus you move the body to the origin, not the origin to the body. This feature can be suppressed/unsuppressed as required. And, as Scott mentioned, you can add a coordinate system, but it is not as powerful as other programs. It is useful for exporting to STEP, etc, as you can use that coordinate system for the output.
