    Default How to set the origin at the corner of the stock?

    It's been about 10 years since I've used MasterCam.
    I'm trying to create a machine origin at the corner of the stock and it's kicking my A$$!
    Last software I used was CamWorks, no problem, pick the corner.
    I'm wanting to use the lower left corner for XYZ zero. This must be a common practice but it's like a secret everywhere I look:

    Go to planes, then selwct new plane, in bottomt left corner.

    And you can move origin, place near you want and select z to move down .

    Thanks for the reply. I ended up drawing a rectangle the size of the stock, at the bottom of the stock, creating a plane for that op, and locating the WCS on the corner, pretty much like you suggested.

    in the stock tab....
    centre top is set as default where the co-ord XYZ points to...

    try L-clicking on a corner of the diagram (to move the stock origin )

    PS.... this is how to place the stock, not how to move the WCS.
