      I have a question regarding inserting new planes. When I insert a new plane, the existing planes in the model (especially the two closest to the new one) moves in the x-direction. I tried locking the points in the existing planes, without luck. Do any of you know how to avoid this?

      Kind regards,

      All right, at least somebody has raised the question.
      In the last version of DS that very feature was added to: (sorry I forgot the precise words) “align automatically the spacing of planes in way to ensure a good fairness of the grid – and of course a smooth plane’s surface – ”
      Well done Sirs…but, sometimes this function is all but desirable!
      Would be nice a way to skip it, I haven’t found it yet…
      To say the truth it is’nt so smart, after have defined some partition ( of the grid ) things go as usual depending – maybe – by number of iterations.
      A ( Very ) boring way to overcome it is: >select the PLANE – and / or related points
      >use MOVE function in TOOLS section
      Repeat ad libitum…
      Bye to all folks.

      Your request is heard- in the next release there will be an option to ‘not move surrounding points’ when inserting a plane. Can’t say yet when this next release will be published, but it won’t be too long…
