This subpanel creates free points at the intersection of geometric entities: lines/lines, lines/surfaces, lines/solids, lines/planes, vector/lines, vector/surfaces, vector/solids and vector/plane.

A free point is created at each intersection location.


Though difficult to see in the second image, a new point was created from the selected lines.

For surface, solid and plane intersections, if the input line or vector lies on the surface/solid/plane the result is undefined and unpredictable.

For vectors, the magnitude and direction of the vector do not have any effect on the result.  The vector extends through the entire model space.
