I have a model that was originally crated in Solid works. The problem is the axis is wrong. If I look at the part in the top view, I am looking at the side of the model. I am using Madcam so I need the parts to be oriented to this top view where X axis is left to right, Y is up and down and Z is coming out of the screen.
The orientation of the model that I need is what is in the right view port of Rhino. However Madcam will not accept the right view CPlane. Apparently it defaults or is restricted to the CPlane in the top view port only. I think?
My question is how do I get the part orientated to the top CPlane?
I tried to opening the file and “exporting with origins” selected 0,0,0 as the origin, When I open the exported file the model was indeed facing up (Top set to the current Cplane). However in trying to create box around the model in Madcam and the box is in the middle of the model. On a different plane I would imagine, Help !
