thanks dickshamdicksham said:your situation should be like this...
you open a V4 model file in Catia V5, but find the system
origin not at the middle of /near the model. You want to
move the model towards the origin. Am i right?
if yes, here may be the solution ( i cannot prove it
right, because i am not a catia user anymore)
Since the imported file has become a dead solid, you can
drag "the compass" from top right corner to the model.
The compass will turn to green. You can then move the
model anywhere by the compass (drag along a line/ an arc
of the compass)
PAN/ROTATE/ZOOM never change the model's position and its
size; just change your eye's position.
