Warehouse import placed offscreen?


#1

when I import a model from the warehouse, and I choose a place to place it, why does it paste somewhere off screen?

in this case it was 50 feet away from the anchor point I chose. you can see from the selection that it’s not strangely big like it has hidden geometry that is causing the shift.

Typically that indicates that the user managed (probably unwittingly) to locate the component axes at a distance. The probably drew the component at a distance from the origin. If you open the imported component for editing you’ll see where the component origin is located. That origin is the insertion point for the component. sometimes you’ll find that components come in laying on their back or upside down, too.

Unfortunately there’s not much you can do but correct the location of the component origin and move the component.
