Point Position & Vectors

Use this dialog to:

Show Velocity Vectors and Acceleration Vectors of a Point as you cycle the model.

Find the exact X and Y coordinates of a Point relative to the XY-Plane of the Mechanism-Editor.

Find the exact x, y and z coordinates of a Point relative to x-y-axes of the Part.

Edit the x,y position of a Point that does not have ANY dimensions or constraints added to it with the Part-Editor.
