User Defined Coordinate System

Postby fer310b » Sun Feb 03, 2013 3:42 am

Is there a way to make the user defined coordinates become the World Coordinates. For example, we will survey in local space, a piece of industrial equipment (a vessel) laying on its side, then define a User system to orient the vessel as it would stand when installed. When performing coordinate geometry, the results are based on the local (World) coordinates. As a work around we rotate in 2D about an individual axis, export the coordinates, swap northings for elevations and import again, then rotate about the 2nd axis and so on until the vessel is orientated as installed. So the question is, is there an easier way to do this?
