How to delete points

The words node and point are both interchangeably by our customers. But there is actually a difference between the two.

  • A point is a physical element in geometry. An point can be selected in the geometry configuration . Therefor they can be deleted.
  • A (mesh)node is an element in the mesh. A node cannot be selected. Not in the Geometry configuration , neither in the Mesh configuration . Therefor they can not be deleted.

Method 1

  • Go to the geometry configuration.
  • Select the relevant point(s) and hit DEL.
    If the line segments left and right of the selected point(s) are co-linear, the point(s) will be deleted.
    If they are not co-linear, the point(s) will remain present. In that case you should try method 2 to remove them.

Method 2

  • Go to the geometry configuration.
  • Double click the linge segment you want to delete. Pay attention to where you double click: the end point nearest to your double click will stay in place while the other one moves.
  • Set the length of the line segments to zero.
    Example: delete point B. Double click the line closer to point A and set the length to zero.
