Controls how copied design objects are transformed. These design objects can be transformed using None, Move by relative distance, Rotate, Mirror, and Transform by coordinate system options. Only one of the transformation options can be used at a time.

If the Copy composed drawings option is active, only the None and Move by relative distance options are available.

None

Select None if you have no transformations and then click Next to proceed to the next wizard page.

Move by Relative Distance

Specifies east, north, and up distances from the source object location.

  1. Click Move by Relative Distance.

  2. Select the units of measurement from the Units list, and then type a value for the distance in each direction.

  3. Click Next to go to the Confirmation page.

Data is always moved with respect to the Global coordinate system, including data in areas modeled with respect to a rotated coordinate system. This is because the software calculates the move based on the orientation of the Global coordinate system, which is zero (0) degrees.

Rotate

Rotates the copied system about a vertical axis. Type the name of an existing coordinate system and an angle of rotation.

  1. Click Rotate.

  2. In the Axis coordinate system box, click More .

  3. In the Select Coordinate System dialog box, select an existing coordinate system, and then click OK.

  4. In the Angle of rotation (deg) box, type the angle by which the system rotates.

  5. Click Next to go to the Confirmation page.

  • The Z-axis of the coordinate system is used as the axis of rotation.

  • It is recommended that the Z-axis of the coordinate system is vertical.

  • If you are copying data between models, the Axis coordinate system must be selected from the source model.

Mirror

Reflects the copied system about a vertical plane.

  1. Click Mirror.

  2. In the Plane coordinate system box, click More .

  3. In the Select Coordinate System dialog box, select an existing coordinate system, and then click OK.

  4. In the Mirror plane list, select the horizontal axis defining the vertical plane by which to mirror the system, either East-West, or North-South.

  5. Click Next to go to the Confirmation page.

  • The ZX plane or the ZY plane is used as the plane of reflection.

  • It is recommended that the orientation of the Z-axis is vertical for the Plane coordinate system.

  • If you are copying data between models, the Plane coordinate system must be selected from the source model.

Transform by coordinate system

Transforms the copied objects from the originating coordinate system to the destination coordinate system; that is, the software honors the orientation of the target coordinate system. This action may result in a move and/or rotation of the copied objects.

  1. Click Transform by coordinate system.

  2. In the From coordinate system box, click More .

  3. In the Select Coordinate System dialog box, select the originating coordinate system that you want to move the system from, and then click OK.

  4. In the To coordinate system box, click More .

  5. In the Select Destination System dialog box, select the destination coordinate system that you want to move the system to, and then click OK.

  6. Click Next to go to the Confirmation page.

In the following illustration, the original objects are aligned with the "From" coordinate system. The copied objects are moved and rotated to align with the "To" coordinate system.
