Tooltip: PointFromCS
Creates a point at the defined X, Y, and Z distances from the origin of the selected coordinate system or from a selected point.
Required Input Coordinate system Optional Input Reference point Parameters X, Y, and Z distances 
Output Point 
Point from Coordinate System Ribbon (for geometric constructions)
Select
Selects an existing geometric construction object, such as a curve or surface, to edit or delete.
Add
Selects geometry that defines a new geometric construction. This option is used with the numbered step options listed below.
Delete
Deletes a selected geometric construction.
Cancel
Cancels the macro, closes the geometric construction ribbon and the Geometric Construction Palette dialog box, and then returns to the main command ribbon.
Close
Verifies the validity of values selected for the options, closes the geometric construction ribbon and the Geometric Construction Palette dialog box, and then returns to the main command ribbon. The selected values are still available when you click again on the main command ribbon.
Geometric Construction
Displays the current geometric construction interface. You can also select:

A different, recentlyused interface.

More  Opens the Select Geometric Construction dialog box. For a new geometric construction, all interfaces delivered with the software are available. For an existing geometric construction, only similar interface types are available.
Geometric constructions displaying only in the Select Geometric Construction dialog box are not intended for general usage. You should first consult your Intergraph support representative before using these geometric constructions.
1
Specifies the coordinate system.
Specifies a reference point from which X, Y, and Z distances are measured. If no reference point is selected, the X, Y, and Z distances are measured from the origin of the coordinate system. This value is optional.
For a new geometric construction, you can identify the status of input items by the background color of the step:

 No background color when there is no input.

 Yellow background when an input is selected.

 Blue background when an input was selected for the previous geometric construction. The input can also be used for the current geometric construction.
Selected inputs display highlighted in pink in the Workspace Explorer and as pink dotted lines in the graphic view:
When changing an existing geometric construction to a different definition, colors represent the different value changes:

and  No background color when you keep the value of the original geometric construction.

and  Yellow background when you change a value.

and  Blue background when the software changes a value to a new suggested value.
Reject
Clears the selections for the current step.
Accept
Accepts the current selections and displays a preview.
Continue
Completes the geometric construction definition. The ribbon continues to display so that you can define parameters for additional geometry.
The geometric constructions are not created and saved to the model until you click Finish on the main command ribbon to create the model object.
X
Specifies the distance along the Xaxis from the origin or reference point.
Y
Specifies the distance along the Yaxis from the origin or reference point.
Z
Specifies the distance along the Zaxis from the origin or reference point.
Point from Coordinate System Ribbon (for topological points in the Molded Forms task)
Properties
Opens the Properties dialog box for the selected geometric construction. This option is only available after selecting an existing geometric construction.
Geometric Construction
Displays the current geometric construction interface. You can also select a different, recentlyused interface.
More
Opens the Select Geometric Construction dialog box. For a new geometric construction, all interfaces delivered with the software are available. For an existing geometric construction, only similar interface types are available. For more information, see GeometricConstructions.chm and CMNSTRGeometricConstructions.chm in the [Product Folder]\Programming\Help folder, available when Programming Resources is installed.
1
Specifies the coordinate system.
Specifies a reference point from which X, Y, and Z distances are measured. If no reference point is selected, the X, Y, and Z distances are measured from the origin of the coordinate system. This value is optional.
Creating
For a new geometric construction, you can identify the status of input items by the background color of the step:

 No background when no input is selected.

 Yellow background when an input is selected.

 Blue background when an input was selected from the previous geometric construction and can be used for the current geometric construction.
Selected inputs appear highlighted in pink in the Workspace Explorer and as pink dotted lines in the graphic view:
Editing
When modifying an existing geometric construction to a different definition, the colors are used differently:

and  No background when the value of the original geometric construction is retained.

and  Yellow background when you change a value.

and  Blue background when the software changes a value to a new suggested value.
Multiediting
When modifying multiple existing geometric constructions and an input or parameter is available for all selections:

 Blue background when the input is the same for all selected geometric constructions.

 No background with pink underline when the input is different for all selected geometric constructions.

 Blue background with pink underline when the input is different for some selected geometric constructions.

 Yellow background with pink underline when all inputs that were originally the same have been changed. Remaining values have not been changed.

 No background and no text displayed when the value of the parameter is different for the selected geometric constructions. Each value, along with the applicable geometric constructions, are available as selections in the box, as shown in the following example.
Reject
Clears the current selections.
Accept
Accepts the current selections, and displays a preview.
Finish
Completes geometric construction definition. The ribbon is still displayed, and parameters for additional geometry can be defined.
Name
Specifies the name of the geometric construction.
Parent
Specifies a parent for the geometric construction. Select one of the following:

The current model. This is the default value.

More  Select a system in the model.
The New GC Set option is not used for topological points.
X
Specifies the distance along the Xaxis from the origin or reference point.
Y
Specifies the distance along the Yaxis from the origin or reference point.
Z
Specifies the distance along the Zaxis from the origin or reference point.
