cad file trouble?

Last post

beginner question. Hi everyone,

I did everything to make the cad file fits with other floors coordinates,
but it still appearing in other place. I did just one cad file with one
layer per floor, all floor are aligned in cad, but, just one floor appears
to be wrong, but I dont know how to fix it up. I changed the shell
coordinates, one by one, and nothing happened, the floor in 3d view was in
the wrong place. Please, help me.

Shell coordinates/inputs won't affect the position for the CAD reference(s). What you're looking for is the origin coordinates for the references.

You have the opportunity to specify these "offset" figures when first importing a CAD file, and can access them after the fact with this icon I've circled:

The dropdown dialog will let you note the origin inputs for your other references, and you can match them up to sync the positions for each.

Best regards!

Hi Nick, sorry about my delay.

I placed footprints and shells fixing the coordinates where screenshot
shows; I suppose both have the same results?
