I'm evaluating Bricscad for a possible move from another CAD package. I'm stuck on what seems should be a very simple task. I simply want to move an object ( entity ) to an absolute X,Y,Z coordinated. I have looked at the docs and video tutorials. They all seem to mention base point and displacement. From what I get out of this, base point is an anchor point and displacement is where you want to move from that point. An example, I draw a simple cylinder which is arbitrarily placed in space, I want to move it to an absolute coordinate of 0,0,0 on the WCS. I select the cylinder, set the base point to 0,0,0 and the displacement to 0,0,0, my cylinder does not move. I've tried other incarnations of selecting base point and displacement, and have only accidentally gotten what I wanted one or twice ( meaning I could not repeat the action ). I did see reference to using *x,y,z to place on the WCS and @x,y,z for a relative move, but nothing seems to work.
The other item is related to the handle point of an object, with a cylinder it seems to select the center by default ( at least on the face ), for a cube, it seems to want to select a corner. Is there a setting that makes the default handle the geometric center of an object?
What am I missing??
