Description

This tool toggles sketch geometry from/to construction mode. It can be used on any type of geometry: line, arc or circle.

Construction geometry is an important tool of the sketcher. When using a sketch for a 3D operation, construction geometry is ignored.

In Sketcher EditSketch.svg Edit sketch, construction geometry is shown as blue, and won't turn green when a sketch is fully constrained. Once you Sketcher LeaveSketch.svg Leave sketch, construction geometry is hidden in the 3D view.

Construction lines can be used as rotation axis by the PartDesign Revolution.svg PartDesign Revolution feature.
