Transform Point from Component Space to Assembly Space Example (C#)

This example shows how to transform a point from component space to assembly space.

//--------------------------------------------------------------
// Preconditions:
// 1. Verify that the specified assembly document to open
//    exists.
// 2. Open the Immediate window.
//
// Postconditions:
// 1. Opens the specified assembly document.
// 2. Selects a component.
// 3. Transforms the component's origin to a point in
//    assembly space.
// 4. Examine the Immediate window.
