Insert > Topological Points creates associative points directly in the graphic view. The points parametrically constrain objects that use them. These points are most commonly used with the Plane by Three Points plane method used in many commands.

This command opens the Point Palette dialog box and contains the following options:

Point from Coordinate System - Creates a point at the defined X, Y, and Z coordinates of the selected coordinate system. For more information, see Point from Coordinate System.

Point at Minimum Distance - Creates a point at defined distances from the faces of two plate, profile, or member systems. For more information, see Point at Minimum Distance.

Point at Offset from Key Point - Creates a point using a cross-section key point as a reference. For more information, see Point at Offset from Key Point.

Point Along Curve on Surface - Creates a point along a curve relative to the selected coordinate system. For more information, see Point Along Curve on Surface.

Point at Curve Middle - Creates a point at the middle of a curve. For more information, see Point at Curve Middle.
