Creating a Pointlight

Use the Pointlight command to insert a pointlight into the drawing. A pointlight has a source position but no direction. It emanates light rays in all directions from a single point, similar to an incandescent light bulb.

To create pointlights:

  1. Type Pointlight at the command prompt.
  2. Specify the source location.
  3. Specify light source characteristics.

    See Creating a Light Source for light source characteristics.
  4. Specify the Exit option to create the light source.

    The light source displays in the graphics area.

  Executing the Light command using the Point option does the same as the Pointlight command.


Command: Pointlight
