The ModelBasepoint command sets a base point in a model that is used when inserting the model into another as a block definition.


Pick a location.


By default the base point in any model is 0,0,0.
The ModelBasepoint command lets you set that point. The set base point has no effect in the current file, it is only a handle when inserting it into another Rhino model or when exporting.
The Export and ExportWithOrigin commands use the current model as a template, so setting ModelBasepoint and other document settings such as Model Units Document Properties and Grid Document Properties are copied to the new file.
