Hi Guys

I am quite new in Onshape and would appreciate some help here. My part in assembly studio are not in center according to the origin, how can i undo this in assembly mode. Any specific tutorial?

    Hi @Iraj_Givechi - when you first insert a part into an assembly, rather than placing it with your cursor, just click the green check mark on the insert dialog and it will be placed in the same location it is in the part studio. It can then be fixed. To place it after insertion, it might be more tricky depending upon whether there is any geometry to reference. One option would be to create a mate connector at the origin in the part and one at the origin in the assembly, then use those.
