How to draw a Point in autocad? I'm using AutoCAD 2013 and trying to write my first ObjectARX application. I can create a line but I don't know how to create a 3d point or modify it.

A "point" in AutoCAD is a dot on the paper. It is defined as having one X, Y, and Z coordinate.
The illustration below shows the various ways that points can be displayed (and plotted) in AutoCAD. To universally change the appearance of points on any file, type the following: PDMODE [number corresponding to point type].
In the OSNAPping functions, a "point" is known as a "node." They are the same thing with different names.
