Hello,

Is there any easy way to place a spt with a certain X coordinate in an arbitrary oriented sln?

If the sln is parallel to the X axis (or one sln projection is) then is very easy projecting the point into the sln. If the sln is not parallel to the X axis, projection is perpendicular to the sln and the projected point have a different X value. As a result i have to do the maths out of sofistik which is frustrating.

Thanks

An easy way is the use of a SAR. Define a SAR with a certain X coordinate and intersect SLN with SAR by REF AXAR.

example:

SLN 1 …

coor X 5 0 0

SAR 99;

SARB OUT; SLNB X1 0 0 0 X2 0 1 0

SARB OUT; SLNB X1 0 1 0 X2 0 1 1

SARB OUT; SLNB X1 0 1 1 X2 0 0 1

SARB OUT; SLNB X1 0 0 1 X2 0 0 0

coor

SPT 101 REF AXAR NREF 1 MREF 99

Thank you for your kind response.

Your aproach works very well but it requieres a lot of commands just to place one point.

Also thank you because you gave me the idea of rotating the coordinates to make the sln paralell to xy or xz planes and then project the point in the sln with ref axxy or axzx.

Regards.
