Placing an Object

Note: Objects can be placed in a Section/Elevation window, but they are considered as graphic symbols only. (No corresponding 3D model element is generated.)
Four geometry methods are available in the Info Box for placing Object and Lamp type Library Parts.
The Orthogonal method automatically places Library Parts in alignment with the normal grid lines unless you specify a rotation angle in the Settings dialog box before placement.
To place a Rotated Library Part, first define a reference point by clicking any point Use the resulting rubber band line to place the rotation vector. This rubber band line can be constrained using any of the drafting modifiers or enabled Mouse Constraint angles.
The Diagonal input method works like the rectangle geometry method used for polygonal elements.
The Rotated diagonal input method works like the rotated rectangle method used for walls, slabs, etc.
