Rotation vs. UCS

187 Views, 2 Replies

My coworker has a plan where the original survey and our internal base plan are not at the same coordinates.
We have confirmation the survey is correct. It appears the person who set the drawings up rotated our base plan rather than using UCS.
We've tried to rotate our file back based on the current rotation but it doesn't work. The rotation showing up in the drawing is 357.

Does anyone know how to adjust our base back to the original survey?

I would first make sure your internal base plan has UCS set to World and
SNAPANG set to 0.
Turn On, Thaw & UnLock all layers.
Then XREF the survey drawing in at 0,0.
MOVE & ROTATE all base drawing objects to match with survey XREF.
Detach XREF

...or find a line common to both objects. Draw on top of it if it is an attachment. Set UCS to that object on the one you want to rotate, then cut that object to clipboard temporarily.
Next, set UCS to the identical line in the other object and paste the first one back in.
Move the first one over top of the second, and reset your WCS...
I hope my info was useful, but if by some odd chance it actually solved your issue, feel free to mark your post as "Accept as Solution". Thanks! :smileyhappy:
