Description

The Constrain Parallel constraint forces two selected straight lines or edges to be parallel to each other.

Operation

The sketch contains two randomly oriented lines.

Apply the Constrain Parallel constraint by either:

  • Pressing the Sketcher ConstrainParallel.svg Constrain parallel button from the Sketcher constraints toolbar by selecting the Constraint Parallel menu item from the Sketcher constraints sub menu of the Sketcher (Sketcher workbench selected) or Part Design (Part Design workbench selected) menu item.
  • Use the Shift + P keyboard shortcut.
  • Use the Sketch → Sketcher constraints → Constrain parallel entry from the top menu.

Result: The selected lines are forced to be parallel to each other. Changing the orientation of one line will change the orientation of the other to be the same.
