The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to add additional vertices to line and polyline objects, in the current document.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Edit » Vertex » Add command from the main menus.


After launching the command, the cursor will change to a square and you will be prompted to select the line, or polyline, that you wish to add a vertex to. Simply position the cursor over the line segment, or polyline edge, that you wish to add the vertex to, and click.

You will now be prompted to select the location for the new vertex. Move the cursor - a guiding line will appear as you do so - to the required location and click to anchor the new vertex. The ends of the original line will remain anchored, but the two segments either side of the new vertex will be redrawn to join at the new vertex position.

Continue adding vertices, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit.


  1. A single line segment will become a polyline object after adding a vertex to it.
  2. Any polyline objects that contain more than two vertices may have a vertex deleted, or removed.
