Hi, you can directly specify the new origin in the AlignCoordinateSystem arguments:


        [CommandMethod("BarUcs", CommandFlags.Modal)]
        public void BarUcs()
            Editor ed = AcAp.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.Editor;

            Vector3d xaxis = new Vector3d(1.8963581, 0.36861467, 0.51763809);
            Vector3d yaxis = new Vector3d(-0.190809, 0.98162718, 0.0);

            Vector3d zaxis = xaxis.CrossProduct(yaxis);
            yaxis = zaxis.CrossProduct(xaxis);

            ed.CurrentUserCoordinateSystem = Matrix3d.AlignCoordinateSystem(
                Point3d.Origin, Vector3d.XAxis, Vector3d.YAxis, Vector3d.ZAxis,
                theNewOrigin, xaxis, yaxis, zaxis);
