Part end offsets

Part end offsets

Use the Dx , Dy and Dz settings in the part properties to move the ends of a part, relative to its reference lineline between two reference points

For example, if the user picks two points to position a beam, these points form the reference line, and handles appear at the line ends.

Reference lines can be used in snapping in a snap switch.

. You can enter positive and negative values.

Alternatively, you can use the contextual toolbar to modify the part's position.

Option

Description

Dx

Changes the length of the part by moving the part end point along the reference line.
