WORLD UCS ROTATED

1252 Views, 7 Replies

The World UCS seems to be rotated for some unknown reason.

If I change it to Plan view everything seems fine but it still bothers me.

I have not used dview twist; it is set to 0.

This seems to be an issue since I updated to Map3D 2013 64bit.

Is anyone else having this problem?

 

Thanks!

Alicia

Hi,

 

can you verify the sysvars

UCSFOLLOW (should be tried with 0)

if you start _GEOGRAPHICLOCATION ... are you asked for removing a geogr.position? If so answer with "remove" and look again to your drawing with _PLAN _WORLD or press onto "TOP" on your viewcube.

 

If none of these options work, please click on "TOP" and let us see the screenshot then.

Hi,

 

>> The World UCS seems to be rotated for some unknown reason.

The WORLD coordinate-system within a drawing can't be rotated or modified in any way. Why do you think that it is rotated?

If you open a drawing in 2013 what is different to the previous AutoCAD Map3D you had?

The view cube in the upper right hand corner (with North, South, East and West) is not straight.; looks rotated about 10 degrees to the NE.

Hi,

 

if UCS is really set to WORLD, then your view is twisted, not the world-coord is rotated. It's just like you rotate your head, that does not rotate the world :smileywink: :smileywink:

Well, you said it, command _PLAN and option _WORLD and you look parallel to world ucs (north is up).

Yep, or more simply: type in _UCS and double enter...

I appreciate all of the replies.

 

I have been working with AutoCAD for 20+ years and have not experienced this before.

 

Maybe the attached png will help to explain my problem....

 

Why does the view cube look exactly the same in every drawing I open?

The ucs icon is squared up and not a named or object aligned ucs; the view has not been twisted.

My drawings did not look like this when they were saved to a version provious to 2013.

Did I unknowingly change a setting to something?

 

thanks,

Alicia

Removing the current geographioclocation fixed the world UCS.  Everything is squared up again.

Thanks so much!!!

I appreciate your patience.
