[franklin at ug.cs.dal.ca: Transformation of World Coordinates]

X-Mailer: ELM [version 2.3 PL11]

   I'm hoping you can help me with a small problem I am having. I am hoping
to transform the coordinates of several objects within one World. We have
the atria, ventricles, and pericardium of a heart (each different off
files), and I am hoping that there might be an easy way to transform the
geometry of these... You see, each object has an origin of approximately 
-120,-160,40, and I'd like the center to be somewhere around 0,0,0. Not only
do I want to change the origin to there, but more importantly I'd like to
save the off file to my new coordinates. Is Geomview capable of this? I have
tried using transformer, and I translate and rotate until I get within the
vicinity of where I want to be. But, all it seems to do is move me within
that area. I can't seem to shift my origin to there, and then recompute all
coordinates with respect to my new origin. Another individual also suggested
that I use anytooff, but since I'm starting with off, I'm not sure how that
would help me...

   Any ideas you might have on this topic would certainly be appreciated.
