    Default How to translate O.C. in spanish?

    HI,

    I am translating a technical drawing in CAD (dibujo técnico) and I am having troubles with O.C. , as in 6'' O.C. I think it means On centre(s), but I'm not quite sure. My guess would be "de centro a centro".
    What do you think?

    Maybe can try with: "del centro" or "desde el centro", but I do not know exactly if it works...

    Hi Nabyl!
    De centro a centro sounds OK to me

    Hola ivanm,
    I had put "desde el centro" in the first place, but I noticed some of the information was lost with this translation. Indeed, you could ask yourself "which center from?"
    Whereas with "de centro a centro" you understand that it is from one centre to another (in the case scenario where you have two or more objects).
    Do you agree?

    I agree with you, In terms of technical drawing is well, I had taken a little more general
