Coordinate system in a drawing

Coordinate system in a drawing

How do I add a coordinate system in a drawing? I have an assembly where the common coordinate system is far from the small area that I'm detailing on one sheet. I'd like to add a coordinate system next to the drawing such that it is easy to understand its location. Do I have to draw it by hand or it there a better way?

Erik,

Hint no.1:

Create additional coordinate system closer to your model and use layers to hide unwanted coordinate systems.

Hint no.2:

Simulate coordinate system using datum curves.

Erik,

please attach a picture of the drawing.

FYI: You can display model csys in the drawing.

I can't attach a picture of the real drawing but here is a simplified drawing, I hope that it does not complicate things. If I use the Ccys display filter I'll see all the coordinate systems (several hundreds) due to the complex assembly. I only want to see the main reference coordinate system and see it in the drawing which is scaled so that I can see the subassembly.
