CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE: How to reset parts back to the origin of an assembly

November 23, 2022 Mark Potrzebowski

Today I wanted to talk about moving components back to the origin of an assembly within CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE R2022x. When working with components, it is easy to accidentally move a component away from the origin. Depending on if the component was built top down or bottom up, this could become a big problem if you don’t know how to successfully move the component back to the assembly’s origin. This short video takes you through two different techniques to move it back when needed.
