# point()¶

Draws a point, a coordinate in space at the dimension of one pixel.

## Examples¶ ```1 2 3 4 5 6``` ```def setup(): py5.no_smooth() py5.point(30, 20) py5.point(85, 20) py5.point(85, 75) py5.point(30, 75) ``` ```1 2 3 4 5 6 7``` ```def setup(): py5.size(100, 100, py5.P3D) py5.no_smooth() py5.point(30, 20, -50) py5.point(85, 20, -50) py5.point(85, 75, -50) py5.point(30, 75, -50) ```

## Description¶

Draws a point, a coordinate in space at the dimension of one pixel. The first parameter is the horizontal value for the point, the second value is the vertical value for the point, and the optional third value is the depth value. Drawing this shape in 3D with the `z` parameter requires the `P3D` parameter in combination with size() as shown in the second example.

Use stroke() to set the color of a `point()`.

Point appears round with the default `stroke_cap(ROUND)` and square with `stroke_cap(PROJECT)`. Points are invisible with `stroke_cap(SQUARE)` (no cap).

Using `point()` with `strokeWeight(1)` or smaller may draw nothing to the screen, depending on the graphics settings of the computer. Workarounds include setting the pixel using the pixels[] or np_pixels[] arrays or drawing the point using either circle() or square().

Underlying Java method: point

## Syntax¶

```point(x: float, y: float, /) -> None
point(x: float, y: float, z: float, /) -> None
```

## Parameters¶

• x: float - x-coordinate of the point

• y: float - y-coordinate of the point

• z: float - z-coordinate of the point
