Intersection Snap

Toolbar: Entity Snaps > Set Intersection Snap ()

Menu: Settings > Entity Snap > Intersection Snap



Experience Level: Intermediate

Toggles the Intersection Snap setting on or off. When set to ON, you can snap a new entity that you are drawing to the three-dimensional intersection of a combination of entities. You can snap to the combination of an arc, circle, line, infinite line, polyline, ray, ellipse, elliptical arc, spline, hatch pattern, polygon mesh, or polyface mesh. You can also snap to an intersection point within a single entity, including a polyline or spline. If the target covers only one entity, the program prompts you to select a second entity and then snaps to the point at which the two entities intersect in three-dimensional space.

The Extended Intersection Snap option snaps to the logical location where two entities (lines, arcs, or elliptical segments) would intersect if they were of infinite length. progeCAD automatically uses the extension option only when you type int in the command bar (not the full intersection command name) after selecting a command, such as Line or Circle. Dashed extension lines are drawn to help show the extended intersection.


  1. Draw a new entity by snapping to the three-dimensional intersection of another entity.
