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.

ConstrainParallel1.png

Select both lines by clicking successively on each of them.

ConstrainParallel2.png

Apply the Constrain Parallel constraint by selecting the Constrain parallel icon Sketcher ConstrainParallel.png from the Sketcher constraints toolbar or by selecting the constrain Parallel menu item from the Sketcher constraints sub menu of the Sketcher (Sketcher workbench selected) or Part Design (Part Design workbench selected) menu item.

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