Description

This tool toggles sketch geometry from/to construction mode. It can be used on any type of geometry: line, arc or circle.

Construction geometry is an important tool of the sketcher. When using a sketch for a 3D operation, construction geometry is ignored.

In Sketcher EditSketch.svg Edit sketch, construction geometry is shown as blue, and won't turn green when a sketch is fully constrained. Once you Sketcher LeaveSketch.svg Leave sketch, construction geometry is hidden in the 3D view.

Construction lines can be used as rotation axis by the PartDesign Revolution.svg PartDesign Revolution feature.

Usage

  1. Select one or more sketch geometry in the 3D view
  2. Invoke the Sketcher ToggleConstruction tool using several ways:
    • Clicking on the Sketcher ToggleConstruction.svg Toggle construction.
    • Using the Sketch → Sketcher geometries → Sketcher ToggleConstruction.svg Toggle construction geometry entry in the Sketcher menu

Example

Use Construction mode on some sketch elements,

and once you Sketcher LeaveSketch.svg leave the sketcher editing mode, geometry that was turned into construction have become invisible in the 3D view (but are still present in the Sketcher editing mode).
