Some nodes are lying outside the plane. What is the easiest way to shift it to the desired plane?


For planes that are oriented perpendicularly to the global coordinate system, it is relatively easy, since a coordinate of all points in the plane must be identical. Provided it concerns a plane which is general in the space, you have to create a user-defined coordinate system and then move the node in the user-defined coordinate system.

However, the fastest option is the "Project" function (see Video). This allows nodes that are situated outside of the target plane to be quickly moved into them.
