Flamingo nXt

easy rendering for Rhino in Windows

I would like to integrate my bridge model into a surface model of terrain provided by a civil engineer. They use a "northings and eastings" coordinate system.

My bridge is located at about 6.21 million East and 1.98 million North. The renderings look awful at those coordinates, but if I shift it closer to the origin everything renders beautifully.

Now my question: Is there a simpler way to adjust the model besides moving everything? That annoys the civil engineers stuck using AutoCAD.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, the only way to do this is to move the whole thing to 0,0.  You can place a point out in space the represents the original point.  This way you can quickly get the model back out to the Stateplane coordinates.
