Create points parallel to two points

Create points parallel to two points

You can create offset points that are parallel to a line between two points you have picked.

  1. On the Edit tab, click Points > Parallel to two points .

    The Point Input dialog box appears.

  2. Define the distances at which the points are created.

    If you want to create multiple pairs of offset points, enter multiple values separated with spaces.

  3. Click OK.
  4. Pick the start point of the line (1).
  5. Pick the end point of the line (2).

    The picking order of the start point and the end point defines the offset direction of the new points.

    When you look from the start point to the end point, Tekla Structures creates the new points to the left of the picked points. If you enter negative values to the Point Input dialog box, Tekla Structures creates points to the right of the picked points.

    When you pick points, Tekla Structures uses arrows to indicate the offset direction.

For example, if you enter 500 500 to the Point Input dialog box, the first pair of new points is created at a 500 mm distance from the picked points, and the second pair of points is created at a 500 mm distance from the first pair of points.
