Unwanted grid system
Read 3086 times

Originally all of my object vertices were "on grid". Now I find that as I select different objects the grid shifts so some items are no longer on grid. Some how I inadvertently created two different grid origins. The objects haven't really moved -- only their apparent position relative to the grid. Can anyone help me get back to one grid referenced to the WCS ?

Thanks,
Stan

Assuming all content is 2D: save your drawing, Select All, Plane by World, Place on Workplane.

Hi Winston,

Unfortunately some of the items are 3D.  Does that make the fix different ?
The shift is noticeable without changing the work plane if that is significant.
My work is all on simple orthogonal workplanes XY, XZ, YZ, nothing fancy.

Thanks,
Stan

I should clarify something.  I have two parallel vertical workplanes.
It is when I shift from selecting items on one of these to selecting items on the other that he grid shift occurs.

"The fix" will likely destroy your drawing. I'm not at all sure that your drawing has a problem that needs fixing.

You have a couple of simple options.

Pick a view perpendicular to the work planes and snap the origin of one to a grid point on the other or snap the origins of both to some convenient vertex. The vertex need not lie on either workplane. This operation will not move the workplanes but will move their respective origins on their planes.

Thanks Winston,

I think that did the trick.

Thanks for the help.
