The 2D Sketch setting provides a range of border to completely define your design. These constraints can be accessed in the map out Fluent Ribbon Bar, on the 2D Constraint Toolbar, or by locking the blue reference indications that are created in the sketch.
You are watching: What are the different types of geometric constraints
Blue Reference signs are produced to assist you in the architecture process, but are no implied constraints. If friend right-click on these indicators, you can lock these indications (turning lock red) i m sorry will pressure them as physical locked constraints.
2D limit Toolbar Constraints
Dimension Constraint. do curve dimension constraint for assorted elements.
Angle Constraint. Make angle dimension constraint between line segments.
Arc size Constraint. Dominate the size of the arc.
Arc edge Constraint. constrain the angle of the arc.
Horizontal Constraint. Make horizontal (L) constraint on heat segments.
Vertical Constraint. Do vertical (W) constraint on heat segments.
Perpendicular Constraint. Do perpendicular constraint in between two currently or a line and circle/arc segment.
Tangent Constraint. Do tangent constraint between lines and also circle/arcs or in between two circles/arcs.
Parallel Constraint. Make parallel constraint between two heat segments.
Equal-Length Constraint. Make equal-length curve constraint on lines and also circles/arcs.
Concentric Constraint. Do a concentric circle or arc constraint.
Colinear Constraint. Do colinear constraint between line segments.
Midpoint Constraint. Do a constraint from a allude to a midpoint that a curve.
Coincident Constraint. Develop coincident constraint between endpoints the lines/circles/arcs and other segments.
Mirror Constraint. Create mirror constraint that the selected geometry.
Offset Constraint. Create an offset constraint that the selected curves.
Fixed-Geometry Constraint. Develop fixed-geometry constraint because that line/circles/arcs.
Projection Constraint. Create projection constraint native the 3D geometry. This only applies to component edges and not edges characterized by IntelliShapes only.
Note: Constraint on B-Splines can be used at two levels. In ~ the curve level, girlfriend can add constraints to the endpoints and also control clues of the spline. At the editing and enhancing level, girlfriend can use constraints come the tangency handle (Linear dimension for the magnitude of the tangency and also an angle constraint to control the edge of the tangency).
