Next the software highlights you the references that the current features uses and prompts from you to select if you want to keep these references or you want to define another. Of course you must select for three references. The placement plane and the x,y parameters.



Then we have the same references copy command. This command is similar with the above but the system takes as reference the old used references and doesn
