Some nodes lie outside a plane. What is the easiest way to shift it to the desired plane?


For planes that lie perpendicular to the global coordinate system, it is relatively easy, since a coordinate of all points in the plane must be identical. However, if the plane is a general plane of 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 lie outside of the target plane to be quickly moved into them.
