Hello everyone.
If possible, I need help.
Simply:
it is possible to slide a point along a line inclined without modifying the trend of the line.
If the answer is yes, how should we proceed?
I have to add points to the line but then I have to move in certain positions.
Excuse me for my bad English.

Bye

Copy that section to a new spline, fast extrude it. Now you have an edge on a plane you can slide to where you need the point. then just snap the point on the original spline to the corresponding vertex on the plane.

Yeah. It’s like that.

Thanks Ascania.
Thanks for the quick response but unfortunately I can not.
I do not understand.
Forgive me.
I hope to translate.
I have to go looking for a friend who knows English.

question:
would not be nice that this possibility was inserted easily without jumping through hoops?

Hi m_m

Not sure if this will help you - there is no point slider, but you can use the edge slider to do what I think you want.  The point should have an edge to it anyway, otherwise it will be an N-gon.

Or just add insert a point where you want it?

Hello

Thanks for the reply.
I know what you wrote.
Unfortunately, I need to move a point along the line as I have indicated.
Is negative (excuse the term) that this possibility does not exist.
I hope that this option be considered and included.
is very useful.

Ciao

Why? What is it supposed to accomplish the shown method can’t do?

I hope I can explain…....

I want to bring the point 1 in the position indicated by the cross. Pos. “A”.

Grazie

Why not just dissolve point at position 1 and cut new edge at position 1

Why do I have to place the point at location A.
Sorry friends if they are a little boring.
But I can not find a way to move the point as I have shown.
In summary move a point along a line inclined .....

Just one of those many things we would like to be able to do, but must find other methods

Still don’t see why you believe you are unable to accomplish this with use of a proxy object or a direct point insertion.

... not the best option but one can drag the triangle to move the dots.

One needs to be careful then not to overlap the face on to itself.

If line extraction gives a slanted line; to get a straight line for the 90 degrees, the line tessellation button works well. Any extra dots can be removed by selecting one at a time and hitting the backspace key on the keyboard.

I think what you want is called a “near” function in other modeling programs. In Rhino, for instance, you can highlight a point and drag it up and down the line. Since your cursor is “near” where you want the point to go, the actual target location will be ON the line.

Unfortunately, I don’t know of any such equivalent function in hexagon. You can “snap” selected points to edge midpoints or other points perfectly, but you can’t drag them along a line with any great precision.

Roygee and Patience have both given viable examples, but I’ll toss another procedure on the pile.

First it appears that you’re working with a 6 sided n-gon defined by points 3-4-5-6-1-2 as I’ve illustrated on your image. It may (or may not) be helpful to turn it into 2 quads 3-4-1-2 and 4-5-6-1, but that’s a different issue. (ADDED NOTE: see my NEXT post to see what the numbers mean)

If you don’t want to tesselate or and/remove points, the following sequence may be of use to you:

BTW, DAZ makes you go through hell posting images, and limits the number to 5.

If they permitted 6, then the following image should have been posted up top, since it serves as a key to what I’m talking about when I mention points by number.

Thanks DAZ, for this really slick new web design. It’s SO helpful to everyone… raspberry

Regalatemi qualche giorno per tradurre….....
Per ora grazie a tutti per le risposte…...

Traduzione esatta:
Give me a few days to translate ........
For now, thanks to everyone for the answers ......
