Hi. Carrara calls them a Target Helper Object in English. I’m not sure how it translates to other languages.

There is a target icon (circle with concentric rings) that is for the Target Helper Object. Simply drag it to your scene. You can also use the Insert Menu. I’ve included screen shots to illustrate.

I use Carrara 7.2 Pro, so it is possible, though not very likely that they have moved or changed the icon in Carrara 8 and later.

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.

It will look like this, and you can change the size and color using the Target Helper Object’s Effects tab.
