To transform the coordinate system of
- Open a new drawing.
- Attach the drawing whose coordinate system
you want to transform. See Attaching Drawings.
- In the new drawing, assign the new coordinate
system to the current drawing. See Assigning
a Coordinate System to the Current Drawing.
- If you have not already assigned a coordinate
system to the original drawing, do that now. Assign the coordinate
system that was used to create the original drawing. See Assigning
a Coordinate System to a Source Drawing.
- Define a query to bring in all objects
from the source drawing. The easiest way to do this is to define
a location condition and use the Boundary Type "All."
This retrieves all objects in the source drawing. See Finding
All Objects in a Specified Location.
As the objects are retrieved
from the source drawing into the current drawing, they are transformed
from the coordinate system of the source drawing to the coordinate
system of the current drawing.
Once the objects are
in the new drawing, you can detach the source drawing and save the
new drawing. The objects are unchanged in the source drawing, but
they use the new coordinate system in the new drawing.
