Cosmetic Vertices at midpoints of Edges

How to use

  1. Select one or more Edges in a View.
  2. Press the 16px Midpoints button
  3. Cosmetic Vertices will be added at the mid-point(s) of the Edge(s).


Cosmetic Vertices have no properties of their own, as they are not Document Objects. They share color and size settings with regular geometry vertices.

Cosmetic Vertices are not accessible from macros or the Python console at this time. This snippet will remove all Cosmetic Vertices from the View.

>>> v = App.ActiveDocument.View
>>> v.clearCV()
>>> App.activeDocument().recompute()
