|Sketch → Sketcher constraints → Constrain symmetrical|
|Introduced in version|
The symmetrical constraint constrains two selected points to be symmetrical around a given line, i.e., both selected points are constrained to lie on a normal to the line through both points and are constrained to be equidistant from the line. Alternatively it can constrain two points to be symmetric with respect to a third one.
Select two points (vertexes) in the sketch and a line in the sketch. The selected points and the line will be dark green.
This will apply the constraint to the selected items.
Note: if you want to define a symmetry constraint with respect to a point, the order of the selection is important, depending on if you select the tool at the beginning or at the end.
- If you click the tool first: select the first point, then the symmetry reference point, and finally the second point.
- If you click the tool last: select the first point, then the second point, and finally the symmetry reference point.
