I am new to Microstation V8i SS2.
I am trying to move a line so the beginning point of the line is set at 0,0,0 point in my model. I have selected the line, selected move, selected the endpoint of line as base point, then typed 0,0,0 into accudraw at bottom of screen. But the line does not move to that location. How do I move this line, and is there a key-in to accomplish this?
This answer is just 6 years later but since I was looking for this and fell in here I leave since other while gave nice advice failed for the exact answer you're looking for, I had this done in teh past but could not recall, here is the answer:
I needed to export a DWG with the coords shifted, sadly the export options don´t have an ACS to Wordl origin overwrite option, this shoul be there already tbh, nevermind, the triad you see grayed is the ACS I had and I needed to be the origin, simply type in the key - in GO= and then snap the origin, as you see in the screenshot in the status "the global origin is offset ---> number"
funny enough, after saving, at least in DWG mode, this is reset :| looks like a bug.
more info on GO shifts
tested further and even on dgn, on reloading the file the GO is shifted back to 0. so GO= aint permanent, which is odd because its acting like an ACS

why would you do that ie shift GO and shift all the coordinates, they will be wrong for the GCS... if you need them in a new datum transform first then save as DWG , 0,0 is always where it belongs …. this makes no sense to me .. but maybe you have an alterior motive....?
