    Default Base Point Keeps Moving

    We are working in ACAD 2009 and LT 2009 here in the office. On one project the base point for all the plans keeps moving from 0,0,0. This is frustrating for both our office and our consultants. We have moved the base back to 0,0,0, we have verified that everyone in our office is using the World UCS and that the INSBASE is set to 0,0,0.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    It is becoming too much of an issue to move the plans back to 0,0,0 since the amount of information is just getting to be too great to deal with that kind of wholesale change. Also, we are getting too deep into CD's to worry about these kind of "basic" issues.

    Thanks for anyone's time in advance.

    Default Re: Base Point Keeps Moving

    Do you use any UCS, even only temporarily? Remember the BASE command is specified to UCS (not WCS). So if you change a UCS the BASE would still be pointing to the WCS 0,0,0; but the current value of BASE would be translated to the new UCS.

    If that's not the case, then something is setting it. Maybe some custom lisp / vba. Or maybe a custom command is setting it "temporarily" but then fails & doesn't set it back to original.
