Manually adjust the Z-value of a control point

Hi everyone,

I would love be able to adjust the Z-value of my control points, as I do in the “box edit” with a point in Rhino, by adding the value as a Z value in relation to world zero.

E.g. If I type 10 the points ends i z = 10

billede

With controlpoints I can use the “setPt” command, but how can I create an alias by default use this setting:
billede

!_SetPt _pause “something here xx”?

Use the dash version of the command. I have aliases for setting X, Y and Z coordinates that have macros like this:

! _-SetPt _Pause _XSet=_No _YSet=_No _ZSet=_Yes _Alignment=_World _Copy=_No

Then you can just type a number for the world absolute Z value and Enter.

Thank you so much Helve!!

Amazing!

In fact, where do you find these macros for each rhino command?

I couldn’t figure out how the macro/code for “_xset” and “_alingment”…etc.

I hope its okay to ask,

For things like this, type the dash version of the command at the command line and look at the options…
