When placing piping specialty items on a pipe, the software uses the divisor point location as the placement point if the divisor point glyph is displayed when you select the pipe. This functionality allows you to place an item at the mid-point of a pipe for example. You can set the number of divisor points on the Tools > Options > SmartSketch3D tab.
