WorldZone definition and active tool/wobj

Hello, I'm not able to find proper information regarding creation of worldzone space. Is this done by using tool0 and wobj0 or rapid is using active tool and wobj when we are doing "pos" definition of wordzone space. If we have a change of active tool and wobj in rapid we can get all kind of stange limitations in program. Thanks.

    Hi, I define the worldzone with CAD data. You can also drive to a point with your TCP and copy the xyz-coord to construct your worldzone. Just be sure you have no workobject, because you need that point displayed in world coords.

    The worldzone is only activated by the tool(TCP) in use, so when the tool(TCP) changes, the worldzone could be not valid for that tool.
