First Positioning type for CAD object placements that we will be looking at is the Single option.
The Single option in my opinion is one of the most used position placement tools that is available.

Alright, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at the positioning for a cad feature and this will be for fabric and software. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. And we make short and easy to watch problem solving videos. And we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we're heading into the programme here now, like I mentioned, um, you know, this mini mini series we're gonna be looking at different positioning types, so we have the single, um basically one in a line, a matrix and then the circular one. So we're gonna be starting off with a single one. Now, when it comes to the actual positioning with these basic shapes, only the rectangle you're gonna have a major variation. The rest is all gonna basically be, um, locating it to the centre of the shape. So if I click on this rectangle here, we can see we have origin option, and then we have lower left or centre. So if we look on this little preview, we can see at the moment it is on the lower left here So if I had to go to this and set it to centre, you will see on our preview. Now it's in the centre of the shape. So that is something to keep in mind while you're working with it. Um, just so you can make more sense of the calculation. So I'm gonna go to show you the difference quick. So I'm gonna go select the shape, just make it 100 by 100 and then I'm gonna go to the single position and click that and leave everything at 00. So now if I had to take my mouse as just centre the small to the centre of the shape, we're gonna be getting a 00, which you can see on the bottom. Left bottom, right, location identifier. So now it's gonna be to the centre of it. So if I had to now go do the same thing. Let's go 100 by 100. Do it to lower left. Say OK, click positioning, and then leave this 00 again. And now you'll see now our 00 is on the bottom left corner. So, like I said, just keep that in mind. It is quite important when you're working with shapes and positioning them like most of these ones, you can just do or will do to the centre. But when it comes to this first one, you have to keep in mind. You can do both, um, bottom and centre Now, um, to actually use these features. I'm sure by now you guys know, but we'll just run through it again. You first have to select something you want to place. In my case, I will do a rectangle once again. Let's go 100 by 100. Make sure it's bottom left, so OK, and then only you click positioning. Otherwise you'll see it's greyed out. So I'm gonna click the single positioning click on the cameras and then from the actual options here, we can see here where it's gonna do it from. So the origin this is the on the canvas and not the actual shape that's gonna be 00. So if you hover your mouse, you're on the back thing. When this window is not open, we can get the location on the location by you on the bottom or right, So if you need it to be at a specific place. You can hover your mouse where you want it to see what's the information. And then come type it in over here, which is quite handy with a single, um, tool that you can do that. And also, um, you can go negative as well, so you can go minus. So if I had to go and add a, uh, cube, make it centre, make it 100. 100. Now, if I had to add it by leaving everything default, the centre will be, um, zero. But what I could do now, I could go 50 and 50 because our cube is 100. Say OK, now the bottom left corner here will be zero and zero. So this is how you're gonna be using or you're gonna be using the X and Y to choose where is the starting location for your single position, which can be very handy. But yeah, otherwise that is it on the single position. If, uh, we head here to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top or right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go, Yeah, request a training video, fill in the uniform, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
