Tool | Description | Tool | Description |
---|---|---|---|

Point | Draws a point | Line | Draws a line segment from 2 points |

Arc | Draws an arc segment from center, radius, start angle and end angle | Arc 3 points | Draws an arc segment from two endpoints and another point on the circumference |

Circle | Draws a circle from center and radius | Circle 3 points | Draws a circle from three points on the circumference |

Ellipse | Draws an ellipse by center point, major radius point and minor radius point | Ellipse 3 points | Draws an ellipse by major diameter (2 points) and minor radius point |

Arc of ellipse | Draws an arc of ellipse by center point, major radius point, starting point and ending point | Polyline | Draws a line made of multiple line segments. Several drawing modes available |

Rectangle | Draws a rectangle from 2 opposite points | Triangle | Draws a regular triangle inscribed in a construction geometry circle |

Square | Draws a regular square inscribed in a construction geometry circle | Pentagon | Draws a regular pentagon inscribed in a construction geometry circle |

Hexagon | Draws a regular hexagon inscribed in a construction geometry circle | Heptagon | Draws a regular heptagon inscribed in a construction geometry circle |

Octagon | Draws a regular octagon inscribed in a construction geometry circle | Slot | Draws an oval by selecting the center of one semicircle and an endpoint of the other semicircle |

Fillet | Makes a fillet between two lines joined at one point | Trimming | Trims a line, circle or arc with respect to a clicked point |

External geometry | Creates an edge linked to external geometry | Construction mode | Toggles an element to/from construction mode. A construction object will not be used in a 3D geometry operation and is only visible while editing the Sketch that contains it |

Coincident | Affixes a point onto (coincident with) one or more other points. | Point on object | Affixes a point onto another object such as a line, arc, or axis. |

Vertical | Constrains the selected lines or polyline elements to a true vertical orientation. More than one object can be selected before applying this constraint. | Horizontal | Constrains the selected lines or polyline elements to a true horizontal orientation. More than one object can be selected before applying this constraint. |

Parallel | Constrains two or more lines parallel to one another. | Perpendicular | Constrains two lines perpendicular to one another, or constrains a line perpendicular to an arc endpoint. |

Tangent | Creates a tangent constraint between two selected entities, or a co-linear constraint between two line segments. | Equal length | Constrains two selected entities equal to one another. If used on circles or arcs their radii will be set equal. |

Symmetric | Constrains two points symmetrically about a line, or constrains the first two selected points symmetrically about a third selected point. | Lock | Constrains the selected item by setting vertical and horizontal distances relative to the origin, thereby locking the location of that item |

Horizontal distance | Fixes the horizontal distance between two points or line endpoints. If only one item is selected, the distance is set to the origin. | Vertical distance | Fixes the vertical distance between 2 points or line endpoints. If only one item is selected, the distance is set to the origin. |

Distance | Defines the distance of a selected line by constraining its length, or defines the distance between two points by constraining the distance between them. | Radius | Defines the radius of a selected arc or circle by constraining the radius. |

Internal angle | Defines the internal angle between two selected lines. | Snell's law | Constrains two lines to obey a refraction law to simulate the light going through an interface |

Internal alignment | Aligns selected elements to selected shape (e.g. a line to become major axis of an ellipse) | Map sketch | Maps a sketch to the previously selected face of a solid |

Merge | Merge two or more sketches | Mirror | Mirrors selected elements of a sketch |
