Use the PointProperties dialogbox to:
•Show the Velocity Vectors and Acceleration Vectors of a Point.
•Find the exact X and Y coordinates of a Point relative to the XYPlane of the MechanismEditor.
•Find the exact x, y and z coordinates of a Point relative to xyaxes of the Part.
•Edit the x, y (and z) positions of a Point, in a Part  ONLY if the position of the Point does not have ANY dimensions or constraints.
To open the Point Properties dialogbox

The Point Properties dialogbox is now open.
Velocity and Acceleration Vector checkboxes ❑Show Velocity Vector  evaluated at each machine step with closedform algorithms ❑Show Acceleration Vector  evaluated at each machine step with closedform algorithms ❑Show Numerical Vectors  calculated numerically with a simple difference algorithm. NOTE: Usually, do not show the Numerical Vectors. If you do show them, and you see there is a difference between the numerical vectors and the other Kinematic Vectors, please email psmotion! 

If you show Velocity and Acceleration vectors, or both:


Scope Calculate and display the Velocity and Acceleration Vectors relative to the:
Velocity Vector Options Display Velocity Vectors as:
Use only the X, Y, and Z Velocity component to compare a X, Y, or Z Velocity component of Point in different mechanisms. E.g. To compare the X (or Y or Z) components of a Point on a TransferTool with a conveyor. 

Scale and Length of Vectors Edit the length of the vectors, use the buttons in the FeedbackArea:
See: AppSettings > Graphics tab > Display colors  Vel/Acc Vectors 
Mechanism Coordinates (ReadOnly)
The Point coordinates (X, Y, Z ) relative to the Origin of the MechanismPlane and BasePart. The X, Y, Z dimensions are ReadOnly. 
Point with Constraints
Point without Constraints
