Create and manage free points

Free points can be used to connect beams, columns, braces etc. without having to define an intersection between grid lines or construction lines.

Note: Once a free point has an item connected to it, if the item is moved a new point is created and the existing free point remains.

Create a free point

  1. Make sure that Free Points are visible in Scene Content.
  2. Right click in the view and pick Add free point... from the context menu.
  3. Enter the point co-ordinates and click OK.

Adding, moving or deleting free points from the Edit tab

  1. On the Edit tab, click Free Points...

    A Free Points dialog is displayed.

  2. Click Add to add a new point, Delete to remove an existing point, or click in the table to edit the co-ordinates of existing points.
