Glossary Term

Grid points of a graphical user interface are mainly used as an input tool in the work plane.

The grid points can be caught when entering the model data. Thus, a fast and accurate way of working is possible.

Under Tools → Work Plane, Grid/Snap, Object Snap, Guidelines, you can make settings for the grid, among other things. For example, you can configure the number of grid points, the spacing of grid points, the rotation and the distance of the snap.

It is also possible to automatically adjust the grid to the model size. This feature is very useful: the manual readjustment of the grid size is not necessary since the grid automatically grows with the model size.
