I watched this video related to alignment. How about when aligning a gage cad model to to 3 tooling balls.

Measure the three tooling balls and either use the RPS alignment or create the plane/line/origin features and use the translation offset values before syncing the CAD model.

Anyone able to direct me to tutorial covering manipulating a model whose reference frame is radically different from the machine reference frame?
