Sketcher ConstrainCoincident


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


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


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.
