The SetPt command moves objects to a specified location in the x-, y-, and/or z-directions.

This command is often used to accurately change the position of points and control points.

The SetPt command is a fast way to be sure that a set of planar curves are all in the same plane.


1. Select objects.
2. In the Set Points dialog box, click the check boxes for the coordinates.
3. Pick a location to match.

The selected objects will line up with the set point in the direction or directions you chose.


To move in only direction, clear the check boxes for the other directions.
To set one check and clear the others, right-click the check box.
