 German term or phrase: Bezugsmaßsystem 3D Baugruppen einfügen mit Bezugsmaßen Beim Einfügen einer Baugruppe kann nach dem Absetzen der Baugruppe ein ***Bezugsmaßsystem*** aktiviert werden. Setzt man jetzt die Baugruppe auf eine Fläche ab, werden die Maße zu dem Bezugskörper und dem Bezugspunkt der Baugruppe angezeigt und können durch Anklicken direkt editiert werden. Dazu muss der Rastermodus oder der Modus „Frei“ aktiv sein.

 English translation:offset coordinates Explanation:The source for the question seems to be MegaCAD 2018: http://www.megacad.de/en/get-to-know/aktuelles/megacad-2018.... Scroll down, and you'll see the "Bezugsmassystem" in action. You put some construction group with a reference point onto a plane that has a known coordinate system and choose some reference point, say the border of the plane (that's what the figure shows). The CAD then shows the x,y. of the construction group's reference point w.r. to the chosen reference point in the plane, and lets you edit the x,y's. The x,y's are most suitably called "offset coordinates" It's not said though, what you have to do with the height, the scale, the rotation, in order to embed all three dimensions. In the following source, a similar process is called georeferencing: http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/manage-data/raster-... But here, the new coordinates are computed w.r. to the plane's immutable origin, not some point you can choose yourself.
