Intersection Snap tool
The Intersection Snap tool snaps to the actual intersection in three-dimensional
space of any 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.
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.
NOTE There are two types of intersection snaps. You can set
the Intersection Snap or Apparent Intersection Snap, but you cannot use both
at the same time.
