Point in AutoCAD
Most points in AutoCAD also called nodes or control points, as the binding to the points made using Node object snap, and support as they used to specify / designate objects coordinates. Dots are printed as any object in AutoCAD.

Command Point in AutoCAD
For the creation of a point in AutoCAD responds Point team that you can call one of the following methods:
- Draw lines from the menu - line Point - the drop-down list, select the mode of constructing points Single Point or Multiple Point;
- Home tab of the ribbon tools - in Draw group - Multiple Point button;
- on the Draw Toolbar - Point button to active mode of constructing several points;
- or to register the team name in the Point command line.
Modes Point command in AutoCAD
Point command in AutoCAD works in two modes: normal and cyclical.
Single Point button corresponds to normal operation command, in which after the construction of the point, the team has completed its execution.
Multiple Point button corresponds to a cyclic operation mode command, at which point the post-build, the team needs to specify the coordinates of the next point, and so on, until you abort its execution by pressing the "Esc" key. If you need to put several points in the drawing, then choose Multiple Point button.
How to put the point in AutoCAD
To put a point on the AutoCAD drawing, you need to call the command Point in any of the above methods. Call up the command from the command line. AutoCAD prompts you:
Specify a point:
Ask a location point on the drawing, you can: click or by entering the coordinates in the command line. Once you set the coordinates, point built and Point team will complete. Team Point is always in the normal mode of construction, if you call it from the command line.
Styles points or change the appearance of points in AutoCAD
If you have not yet changed the appearance of the points (size and shape), then put a point on the drawing, you may not notice it. By default, time is displayed as one pixel on the screen is difficult to see enough.
Point Style dialog box allows you to change the display of the points in the drawing, which can cause:
- from the menu bar, click Format - line Point Style ...;
- Home tab of the ribbon tools - in a group of Utilities - Point Style button;
- or to register the name of the command in the command line PType.
The dialog box offers 20 points of design styles. Choosing the right style points by clicking the mouse. The selected view point as well as the current highlighted black background.
The size of a point in AutoCAD (like to make a point in AutoCAD right size)
At the bottom of the Point Style dialog box, you can change the size of point objects. The size of points in AutoCAD can be set:
Set Size Relative to Screen - the size of points on AutoCAD drawing is defined as a percentage of the screen size, the size of the points will change when you zoom the drawing, but does not depend on the change of scale of the drawing.
Set Size in Absolute Units - the size of points on AutoCAD drawing is set in absolute terms, respectively, the size of the points will not change when you zoom the drawing, but when you change the scale of the size of a point object is also changing.
Let us examine the question in more detail: "What is the size, the size of the type to choose to display the points in AutoCAD?"
Points in AutoCAD are used as auxiliary facilities for constructions (not printed). In this case, regardless of the size of the type adopted by resolution 5% points / U. Type the size of the points is logical to use the Set Size Relative to Screen. When zooming drawing dot size will change and bring some inconvenience, so use the Regen command - the regeneration of the current viewport in AutoCAD or Regenall command to regenerate all viewports. View (style) of the point, I use "Cross" (as in the multiplication sign), because It does not clutter the drawing and is clearly visible.
Points in AutoCAD are used as a full-fledged drawing objects (printed). In this case, the size of dots used type of logical (Set Size in Absolute Units). point size is calculated, and will depend on the following components:
- Print scale viewports;
- scale type lines;
- weight (thickness) layer lines;
- the project (task) in general.
Once you have selected the correct form (style) of the point, the size of the type and size indicated point value, press the "OK" button of the dialog box. As soon as the dialog box closes, AutoCAD automatically redraw the previously constructed point in a new form in all AutoCAD drawing file.
How to set the point of the coordinates in AutoCAD and connect the dots, for example, a segment
Therefore, to the point we can define the coordinates that we already know.
Click the Multiple Point button. At the command prompt be prompted:
Specify a point:
At the command prompt absolute coordinates of the first point: (20, -30). Press "Enter". The first point created. AutoCAD will issue the following query:
Specify a point:
Enter the absolute coordinates of the second point on the command line (70, 50). Press "Enter". The second point is created. Since Point team uses a cyclic mode, suspend its execution by pressing the "Esc" key.
Now we need to connect the dots in AutoCAD segment. Call Line command. prompted the command prompt:
Specify first point:
in response to which, using the object snap Node Snap to the first point and click. On the command line query Specify next point: Specify the second reference point in the drawing, in the same way. Two support points are connected in the drawing.
