Here’s a summary of some COGO operations and how to do them in VectorWorks.

**Insert point by coordinates**

Double-click on the 2D Locus or 3D Locus tool to either create 2D or 3D locus points.

**Insert point by clicking**

Use the 2D or 3D locus tool and click in the drawing to insert point.

**Insert line with bearing or azimuth**

Double-click on the Line tool to bring up the preferences dialog box. Highlight the "polar" button to get polar style L/A coordinates.

**Insert multiple points along a line or curve**

Use the Line into Segments… and Arc into Segments... commands respectively to break the lines or curves into segments. To just place a point at a specific interval along a line, use the Snap Distance constraint with Multiple Divisions enabled and a locus point.

**Curves**: create curves through 2 & 3 points, between 2
intersecting lines, by parameters (radius, entry bearing, tangent,
external, arch length, etc)

The Arc tool does all of these, some just using the modes on the mode bar. Simply double-click the Arc tool for coordinate entry.

**Boundary**: select any points/lines in order and define a boundary

The Property Line object will do this (by points), as will its
accompanying tool, Property Line Tool (by clicking a starting point and
entering data).
Points Coordinates transformation**: rotate around a point, translate, increase elevation by, etc**

Enter your points as 3D loci using the 3D Locus Tool. You can group them and then rotate, move, or elevate them together. Then ungroup if you want.
