Overview:  UCS - User Coordinate System

The pre-defined default coordinate systems when you enter any EZ-CAM application is called the World coordinate system and shown in the middle of the screen, drawn in red. If necessary, the system provides commands that enable you to define additional coordinate systems that we call User Coordinate Systems or simply UCS. The New UCS command creates a new coordinate system at any desired position and direction without having to move any entities. Geometry and other elements are always defined relative to the currently active UCS system that is displayed on the UCS-Status/Selection Button on the lower part of the EZCAM screen.

 

Redefining the World Coordinate System (WCS)
If the Active Coordinate System is set to "World", then you can redefine the origin and the direction of the World Coordinate System, using the UCS Three Points or UCS on Geometry commands.
