Using CFrame (Coordinate Frame) is easy. You just need a few simple steps to get you started:
1. Open up ROBLOX Studio
2. Make sure you have the Command bar open (View>Toolbars>Command)
3. Make a new place (Studio>File>New).

Alrighty, starting off. Insert two parts in your place, you can call them whatever you like. I'll be using A and B. (Make sure that the parts have different names, otherwise CFraming becomes difficult.) Anchor both parts. Now you can begin CFraming.

1: Say you wanted the two parts to intersect. That's pretty easy, just use this line of code in the command bar:
workspace.A.CFrame = workspace.B.CFrame
Hit enter, and voila! You have yourself 2 parts in 1!

2: Say you wanted to rotate one of the parts at a 45 degree angle. CFrame uses a different measuring system called radians. To fix this, we'll use this line of code:
workspace.B.CFrame = workspace.B.CFrame * CFrame.Angles(math.deg(45),0,0)
Now you'll notice this looks quite different from the previous command. This is because we don't want to change the regular position of the brick, just what angle it points to. The asterisk, meaning multiply, when used in CFraming just means to change the position of it by n units.

3: Now say you wanted to bring part A back out of Part B. To achieve this, you'll use something like the codes of part A and B put together:
workspace.A.CFrame = workspace.A.CFrame * CFrame.new(4, 0, 0)
Here, you'll notice that after the asterisk, we used another CFrame.new instead of CFrame.Angles. This is because CFrame.Angles (Or CFrame.FromEulerAnglesXYZ, as is the full name) simply changes the part's angle (duh), while CFrame.new changes the part's position.

Congratulations, you now know how to CFrame! Hope you understood and enjoyed my tutorial, and make something awesome with it!

Note: this is not the only CFraming techniques. There are more, this is just a basic tutorial.
