Woundering if any one knows how to set insertion point for a AcDb3dsolid (box), by default it is 0,0,0... I whant it to be user defined, but can´t find member function setting koordinats..

solids are always created with centroid (0,0,0) so you must translate it to the place you want it to be.

    acutPrintf(_T("\nTesting make of AcDb3dSolid (BOX) ..."));

    ArxDbgUiPrPoint prCentroid(_T("Centroid"), NULL);
    ArxDbgUiPrDist prXLen(_T("X-length"), NULL, ArxDbgUiPrDist::kNoNegNoZero);
    ArxDbgUiPrDist prYLen(_T("Y-length"), NULL, ArxDbgUiPrDist::kNoNegNoZero);
    ArxDbgUiPrDist prZLen(_T("Z-length"), NULL, ArxDbgUiPrDist::kNoNegNoZero);

    if ((prCentroid.go() != ArxDbgUiPrBase::kOk) ||
        (prXLen.go() != ArxDbgUiPrBase::kOk) ||
        (prYLen.go() != ArxDbgUiPrBase::kOk) ||
        (prZLen.go() != ArxDbgUiPrBase::kOk))

    AcDb3dSolid* solid = new AcDb3dSolid;
    Acad::ErrorStatus es = solid->createBox(prXLen.value(), prYLen.value(), prZLen.value());
    if (es == Acad::eOk) {
            // solids are always created with centroid (0,0,0)
            // so you must translate it to the place you want it
            // to be.
        AcGeMatrix3d mat;

        ArxDbgUtils::transformToWcs(solid, acdbHostApplicationServices()->workingDatabase());        // could combine with above xform to be optimal
