Defining the Translation of a System

The System Translation tab on the System/Assembly panel allows you to change the position of a system within a model.

If symmetry is on, system symmetry is maintained. If symmetry is off, the entire system moves in the specified direction.

  1. From the Project Browser, select a system.
    The Systems/Assembly panel is displayed.
  2. Select the System Translation tab.
  3. Define a translation direction.
    • Double-click the Vector collector and select a vector from the Select a Vector dialog.
    • Using the arrow button to the left of the collector, select DxDyDz, click the collector to display the DxDyDz Values dialog and enter vector coordinates.
  4. Enter the distance to move the system along the coordinates in the Translation distance text box.
  5. Click the + or - buttons to move the system.
