Align to Coordinate System


For the first time ever, BobCAD-CAM now offers a way to quickly rotate and translate geometry into a particular location and orientation at the same time. Occasionally, when you bring a part into BobCAD it can be located in what may look like an odd place and orientation. In many cases this is because it was a part of an assembly, in which its seemingly odd placement would make sense. Whatever the reason for its orientation, if you did want to move it and rotate it, having to figure out the angles to rotate in which axes can be tricky. Now, with the new Align to Coordinate System function, you can quickly define the coordinate system of the part(s) to be moved, define the coordinate system you want it to move to, and you're done!
