The Choose Selectable Points dialog


The Choose Selectable Points dialog is used to select how a point is chosen on a 3D model when running various 3D Body placement commands.


This dialog is opened after running a command that requires a point on a 3D model to be selected. Run the command, click on a placed 3D model then press the Tab key. Any of the following commands can be used to access the dialog:

  • Tools » 3D Body Placement » Orient And Position 3D Body.
  • Tools » 3D Body Placement » Position 3D Body.
  • Tools » 3D Body Placement » Set Body Height.
  • Tools » 3D Body Placement » Measure Distances.


Up to two point types can be included:

  • Include Vertices - enable to be able to select and measure from any vertices on the 3D model.
  • Include Snap Points - enable to be able to select and measure from any placed snap points on the 3D model.
