Coordinate filters specify a new coordinate location by using the X value from one location, the Y value of a second location, and, for 3D coordinates, the Z value of a third location. When used with object snaps, coordinate filters extract coordinate values from an existing object.
Specify center point for circle or [3P/2P/Ttr (tangent tangent radius)]: .x
of: Select the horizontal line on the lower edge of the holding plate
of: (need YZ): mid
of: Select the vertical line on the left side of the holding plate
of: Diameter/<Radius> Specify the radius of the hole
This example shows how to use coordinate filters to create a point object at the center (centroid) of a 3D object. Hidden lines have been removed for clarity. The X value of the new point is extracted from the first location specified, the Y value from the second location, and the Z value from the third. The three values are combined to form the coordinate values of the new point.
of select object (1)
(need YZ): .y

(need Z): mid
