moving the origin?
i'm currently using onshape as a (very nice) 2D drawing tool. i'm then hand-translating the 2D drawing coordinates to g-code. since i'm going directly to "machine coordinates", it's important that i be able to establish the 0,0 origin somewhere convenient on my part. i realize that if i were to think ahead all the time, i could always start my drawing with 0,0 at the right place. but sometimes i forget, or parts grow in unexpected directions, and moving the origin becomes desireable. is there a way to do that? moving the entire drawing would accomplish that, but doesn't work if it's not completely "locked down", e.g., if some sketch entities don't have enough constraints.
