Apparently it's Base Orphan Reference Node (?) http://makeashorterlink.com/?H29021979 HTH Duncan -- "Humour ... is one man shouting gibberish in the face of authority, and proving by fabricated insanity that nothing could be as mad as what passes for ordinary living."

This technique was discussed in an SDRC I-deas class I took recently. I-deas doesn't use automatic origin points/planes/axes, so the BORN concept is to make reference planes (Base Orphans) to serve as the equivalent of the Inventor origin. By constraining part geometry to this origin, you reduce the chance of unexpected results when changing dimensions or assembly constraints.

You're right on the BORN technique. I-DEAS can create multiple orgins in the same part that could remain parametric (think of work points but it would create the 3 axises and workplanes as well). I used to work with I-DEAS and I miss the orgins. I-DEAS really pushes for you to build the base orhpan to create your part around, and then use workplanes as much as possible to sketch off of and constrain to. Ford forces their designers to use the BORN method. They also use the BORN method to create their parts in body position, so when you insert the part into the assembly all you do is constrain the orgins of the part and the assembly and the part should be in place.

It's what happens if you messed up on the "Rhythm Technique".

I'm going to have to invoice you to make up for the excessive amount of monitor wipes I have to use while reading your posts. I just checked to make sure and it isn't Friday yet. I suppose you'll have lots of Friday's once St.Helen's blows up.

I think Sean has the market on "Snow Days" covered better than I with all the hurricanes. Of course if you would stop washing the monitor you could claim dizzyness, claim everything is blurry and get a few days off too!
