|Drafting → Rectangle|
|Introduced in version|
Rectangle defined by the two corner points
- There are several ways to invoke the command:
- Click the first corner point in the 3D view, or type coordinates and press the button.
- Click the opposite corner point in the 3D view, or type coordinates and press the button. This point must not be constrained to the X, Y or Z axis, or the resulting rectangle will be malformed.
- To enter coordinates manually, simply enter the numbers, then press between each X, Y and Z component. You can press the button when you have the desired values to insert the point.
- Press or click the checkbox to toggle relative mode. If relative mode is on, the coordinates of the second point are relative to the first one; if not, they are absolute, taken from the origin (0,0,0).
- Press or click the checkbox to toggle continue mode. If continue mode is on, the Rectangle command will restart after you give the second point, allowing you to draw another rectangle without pressing the command button again.
- Press DataMake Face
true); if not, the rectangle will not make a face (DataMake Face
or click the checkbox to toggle filled mode. If filled mode is on, the rectangle will create a filled face (
- Hold snapping your point to the nearest snap location, independently of the distance. while drawing to force
- Press or the button to abort the current command.
- A Draft Rectangle can be edited with the Draft Edit command.

A Draft Rectangle object is derived from a Part Part2DObject and inherits all its properties. It also has the following additional properties:
- DataArea (
Area): (read-only) specifies the area of the face of the rectangle. The value will be
0.0if DataMake Face if
- DataChamfer Size (
Length): specifies the length of the chamfers at the corners of the rectangle.
- DataColumns (
Integer): specifies the number of equal-sized columns in which the rectangle is divided.
- DataFillet Radius (
Length): specifies the radius of the fillets at the corners of the rectangle.
- DataHeight (
Distance): specifies the height of the rectangle.
- DataLength (
Distance): specifies the length of the rectangle.
- DataMake Face (
Bool): specifies if the rectangle makes a face or not. If it is
truea face is created, otherwise only the perimeter is considered part of the object.
- DataRows (
Integer): specifies the number of equal-sized rows in which the rectangle is divided.
- ViewPattern (
Enumeration): specifies the Draft Pattern with which to fill the face of the rectangle. This property only works if DataMake Face is
trueand if ViewDisplay Mode is
- ViewPattern Size (
Float): specifies the size of the Draft Pattern.
- ViewTexture Image (
File): specifies the path of the image file to be mapped onto the face of the rectangle. Blanking this property will remove the image. The rectangle should have the same proportions as the image to avoid distortions.
To create a Draft Rectangle use the
make_rectangle method (introduced in version 0.19) of the Draft module. This method replaces the deprecated
rectangle = make_rectangle(length, height, placement=None, face=None, support=None)
- Creates a
lengthin the X direction and
heightin the Y direction, with units in millimeters.
Nonethe shape is created at the origin and the length will be parallel to the X axis.
True, the shape will make a face, that is, it will appear filled.
