Geometry Constraint

Geometry constraint can keep the certain relationship between the objects.

Geometry constraint includes parallel, perpendicular, horizontal, vertical, tangent, concentric, coincident, equal, collinear, symmetrical, fixed constraints and same size. The valid entities for geometry constraint includes line, circle (arc), point.

Command:  Horizontal: Make the line keep parallel with X axis

Valid Objects: Line, polyline subobjects and two valid constraint points.

Steps:

1.Select. 2.Select the line or 2 points. Vertical: Make
the line keep parallel with Y axis.

Valid Objects: Line,polyline subobjects and two valid constraint points.

Steps:

1.Select. 2.Select the line or 2 points Parallel：Make two lines keep parallel with each other.

Valid Objects: Line and polyline subobjects.
