Negative coordinates are seen as a positive in NX

Negative coordinates might be seen as a positive coordinate when using “Ordinate” dimensioning or “Hole Table” commands in the NX Drafting. This problem occurs because of default settings of the “Origin Type” in these commands. Change this setting to “User Defined” as shown in the figure.

If you can not change this setting, click on the “Ordinate Origin” on the graphic window. (“Select Origin” is highlighted in the command dialog box.) Ordinate origin yellow color changes to blue and “Origin Type” appears on the NX graphic window.
