Matching everything to origin/axis

how do i match this entire thing so that it aligns with the 3 axis? i will be working on the circle in the middle.

I think I’d do this by making a component that has a manually set axis as it’s origin.

When you create a component you can assign an orientation to the axes. and from there SU will honor that setting whenever you bring it into your model space.

This should create a self aligning component… so long as you don’t make a lot of changes to your normal global axes.

You can also edit a components axis origin at any time, and as much as you have patients for… so experiment a little bit, and don’t worry too much about messing something up.
