Description

This tool draws a line by picking two points in the 3D view. When starting the tool, the mouse pointer changes to a white cross with a red line icon. Besides are coordinates shown in real time.

Sketcher LineExample1.png

The created line object starts and ends at the given points, but the line is infinite regarding the constraints Tangent, Point On Object and Internal Angle. This means for example, that a point with the constraint Point On Object may not be located between the two given points but can lie outside of the two points on the extension of the drawn line.


Usage

  • Pick points on an empty area of the 3d view, or on an existing object (auto constraints must be active in TaskView).
  • Pressing Esc or clicking the right mouse button cancels the function.
