Rej, the example I made is most likely not the best example. In this design, there would have been two more facets at the corner of the stone, but I really had no idea what angle I would end up with them, but I did have an idea of what angle I wanted for the second crown tier. Once that facet was placed, then I would have created those two other corner facets.
When actually cutting the design, the order would have been arranged so that the crown facets progressed around the stone.

There is a much better example of translating a point in the GemCAD instruction pdf file. See page 48.
