Description

Applies Coincident constraints to endpoints with the same coordinates of the selected elements.

Usage

  1. Select the elements in the 3D-view or in the listbox on the left side of the screen
  2. Invoke the command using several methods:
    • Press on the Sketcher ConnectLines.svg button in the toolbar.
    • Use the Ctrl + Shift + K keyboard shortcut.
    • Use the Sketch → Sketcher tools → Connect Edges entry from the top menu.

Notes

Before using this command make sure that obvious constraints (horizontal, vertical, tangential) are already applied to the elements. Selecting the elements in a counter-clock-wise order seems to produce better results.
