UCS base point all over the place when placing blocks made in past versions


Recommended Posts

Autocad 2013 in model work area , I am having a problem with selecting blocks from the pallet and placing them on the drawing. most were set t0 place at the selected point. how ever i don't know where to begin it will place them at x,y but not at z, ends up out of frame. in front view i place the block but when switching to top view the block is 100 feet to the rear of the model. 1:1 , inches and feet


any help where to start correcting this it is cumbersome to constantly move the object a 2ed time.


I guess its not really the insertion point because i can set that with the 0,0,0.

It's when i click to set the point from the point of view without a snap it seems the axis view is not at 0 from what ever view im in but at the limit of the drawing from that point of view.


example: I'm looking at the front view standing on the bottom center edge of the screen or limit of 125' +/- from the plan view.

so i'm 125' from the 0,0,0 base point of the drawing in the z axis but at 0,0 in both x and y
