Hello,

I have a Parametric Plot that is centered at {0,0,0} (Example shown below). How can I relocate the origin (e.g. {3,0,0})?

Any help appreciated!

This will translate the the z by 3

 g = ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[t] Cos[u], Sin[t] Cos[u], Sin[u]}, {t, 0, 2 Pi}, {u, -Pi/2, Pi/2}];
    Graphics3D[Translate[First@g, {0, 0, 3}], Axes -> True]

I think that only alters the display of the axis labels

That is what I understood you wanted. It looks like you want coordinates transformation then. But you are starting with a parametric equation, so this can be tricky. If I get an inspiration will try later.

try AxesOrigin -> {3, 0, 0}
