How Numerically Defined Coordinate Systems Works| SOLIDWORKS
In parts and assemblies, you can define coordinate systems by entering absolute numeric values for position and orientation. These values define the position relative to the local origin, and not the global origin.
To know how these numerical defined coordinate systems works follow below steps and videos.
Insert a Coordinate System.
Check Define position with numeric values, and then enter values for the X, Y, or Z axes.
Remember, values define the position relative to the local origin, and not the global origin.
If required, check Define rotation with numeric values to apply a specific rotation to the coordinate system. Then enter an angular value for at least one axis.
Click OK to complete the feature.
