Creates one or more lines by either giving absolute coordinates or relative coordinates, by giving the angles with respect to the xz- and the xy-plane and a length or a vector describing the direction and a length.

line 1 2 0 "relative" 3 4 8
Creates a line from a new point with coordinates (1, 2, 0) to another new point which is 3 in the x-, 4 in the y- and 8 in the z-direction from the first point at (4, 6, 8).

line Point_1 "relative" 3 4 8 -5 -9 10 "angles" 0 30 16
Creates a line from Point_1 (1, 2, 0) to a new point which is 3 in the x-, 4 in the y- and 8 in the z-direction from the first point at (4, 6, 8). From that new point a line is created to another new point which is -5 in the x-, -9 in the y- and 10 in the z-direction from the previous point at (-1, -3, 18). From that point a new line is created which has an angle of 0 degrees with respect to the xy-plane, an angle of 30 degrees with respect to the xz-plane and a length of 16. This line ends at coordinates (12.86, -3, 26).

line (1 2 3) "angles" 45 50 10 "absolute" (4 5 6)
Creates a line from a new point with coordinates (1, 2, 3) which has an angle of 45 degrees with respect to the xy-plane, an angle of 50 degrees with respect to the xz-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, 6).

line (1 2 3) "angles" 45 50 10 "vector" (8 2 5) 14
Creates a line from a new point with coordinates (1, 2, 3) which has an angle of 45 degrees with respect to the xy-plane, an angle of 50 degrees with respect to the xz-plane and a length of 10. Then creates a line from the end point of the first line in direction (8, 2, 5) with a length of 14.

line Point_2 "angles" 90 0 Volume_1
Creates a line from Point_2 with an angle of 90 degrees with respect to the xy-plane, an angle of 0 degrees with respect to the xz-plane and snaps it to Volume_1.
