The Point tool creates a point in the current sketch, which can be used for constructing geometry elements. The point is always an construction element and does not show up in the 3D-view.

Point in the sketcher

How to use

  • Click on the button Sketcher CreatePoint.png Create point, to activate the function.
  • Clicking in the sketch creates a point.
  • Pressing Esc or clicking the right mouse button cancels the function.


A mode to snap to the grid can be set in the Sketcher Preferences. The point snaps then to the grid, if it has less than 25% grid distance to a grid line. The snap mode does not fix them to the grid. The points can be moved with the mouse or constraints to other locations.


The created point is not available outside of the sketch. In case a point is needed in the 3D-view, use the PartDesign Point for a datum point or the Part Point instead.
