The Draft AddPoint tool allows you to add points to already created Draft Wires and Draft BSplines
The counterpart to this tool is the Draft DelPoint operation.
- Select a Draft Wire or a Draft BSpline. Note: The tool is disabled if no object is selected.
- Press the Draft AddPoint button.
- Click a point on the 3D view, or type a coordinate and press the Draft AddPoint button.
- Press Esc or the Close button to finish the operation; points already placed will remain.
This functionality is also available from the Draft Edit tool.
The options of this tool are described in Draft Edit.

There is no programming interface available for the AddPoint tool, however, adding points is simple.
Points attribute of a wire or spline is a list with the points that comprise that object; to add points, overwrite this attribute with a longer list of points. You can use methods like
insert() to add a new element in the desired position in the list. Each point is defined by its
FreeCAD.Vector, with units in millimeters.
import FreeCAD, Draft
p1 = FreeCAD.Vector(-1000, -400, 0)
p2 = FreeCAD.Vector(2200, -1000, 0)
wire = Draft.makeWire([p1, p2])
p_new = FreeCAD.Vector(1500, 1500, 0)
points = wire.Points
wire.Points = points
