Creates a line between two points (which may either exist, or will be created) and add a plate feature to it.
plate Point_1 (5 6) Creates a new line between Point_1 and a new point with coordinates (5, 6) and adds a plate feature to it.
plate Point_1 Point_4 Creates a new line between Point_1 and Point_4 and adds a plate feature to it.
plate (1 4) (6 5) Creates a new line between two new points with coordinates (1, 4) and (6, 5) and adds a plate feature to it.

Creates lines between three or more points (which may either exist, or will be created) and add plate features to them.
plate Point_1 (5.1 6.4) Point_3 Creates two lines, one between Point_1 and a new point with coordinates (5.1, 6.4) and one between the new point and Point_3, and adds plate features to both lines.

Creates one or more lines by either giving absolute coordinates or relative coordinates, by giving the angles with respect to the xy-plane and a length or a vector describing the direction and a length and add plate features to them.
plate 1 2 "relative" 3 4 Creates a line from a new point with coordinates (1, 2) to another new point which is 3 in the x- and 4 in the y-direction from the first point at (4, 6) and adds a plate feature to it.
plate Point_1 "relative" 3 4 -5 -9 "angles" 30 16 Creates a line from Point_1 (1, 2) to a new point which is 3 in the x- and 4 in the y-direction from the first point at (4, 6). From that new point a line is created to another new point which is -5 in the x- and -9 in the y-direction from the previous point at (-1, -3). From that point a new line is created which has an angle of 30 degrees with respect to the xy-plane and a length of 16, this line ends at coordinates (12.86, 5). Adds plate features to all lines.
plate (1 2) "angles" 45 10 "absolute" (4 5) Creates a line from a new point with coordinates (1, 2) which has an angle of 45 degrees with respect to the xy-plane and a length of 10. Then creates a line from the end point of the first line to a new point with coordinates (4, 5) and adds plate features to all lines.
