Create points on a plane

Create points on a plane

You can create several equally spaced points in the desired area in the model. The points are created in relation to the picked origin position.

A point array consists of several points in a rectangular xy(z) pattern relative to the current work planeplane that the user has chosen in a model and that is currently active for working on in a model view

Newly created, copied, or moved model objects comply with the work plane. For example, shifting the work plane to follow a sloped plane makes it easier to model sloped structures.

. The x, y, and z coordinates of the points define the array pattern. The x and y coordinates are relative distances between the points on the work plane. The z coordinates are absolute distances perpendicular to the work plane.

  1. On the Edit tab, click Points > On plane .

    The Point Array dialog box appears.

  2. Define the array point coordinates.

    Use positive or negative values to define the direction of the array.

    Use a zero at the beginning of the row to represent a point in the array origin. Separate multiple values with spaces.

  3. Pick the origin of the array in the view.

    Alternatively, you can define the origin in the Point Array dialog box.

  4. Click OK.
