ajhunte is on a distinguished road
1.) I have defined a user coordinate frame.
2.) I have also downloaded some interpolation data (a heat source) that I plan on placing into one of my components.

I would like to make sure that the coordinates of the interpolation data (x,y,z) correspond directly to the origin of my user coordinate frame. To do this, I just put the components that were going to have the user function inside of them as being defined by the new coordinate frame. The ANSYS post output looks like there is a heat source in the component, but i have no way to confirm that its origin aligns with my new coordinate frame.

After reviewing the tutorials at ANSYS website, I couldnt find anything that could confirm that I had done this correctly. Can someone confirm that this should work properly (assuming that I put all the necessary components in the new coordinate frame).
