Sketching Circular Fillets

You can round sharp corners of a Sketch using Circular Fillets. • Circular Fillets: – Can be applied to concave or convex corners. – Construction lines are created back to the intersection. – Corners do not have to be 90°. – Radius size is based on pick location. Figure 2 …

Sketching Rectangles and Parallelograms

You can quickly sketch four-sided shapes. • The four lines are independent. • You can delete, trim, and align each line individually. • You can create symmetric rectangles using Center Rectangles. Figure 1 – Corner Rectangle Figure 3 – Center Rectangle Sketching Rectangles and Parallelograms Figure 2 – Slanted Rectangle …

Sketching Centerlines

A centerline is a type of construction geometry that can be used to enforce symmetry and control sketch geometry. • There are two types of construction Centerlines: – Centerline – Tangent Centerline Figure 2 – Dimensioning a Circle without a Centerline Sketching Centerlines Figure 1 – Symmetry Created using a Centerline Figure 3 …

Sketching with On-the-Fly Constraints

When sketching entities, you can manipulate constraints on-the-fly as they appear. • On-the-fly constraints enable you to capture design intent. • Constraint manipulations include: – Lock/Disable/Enable. – Disable constraints from appearing on-the-fly. – Toggle the active constraint. Figure 2 – Disabling a Constraint Sketching with On-the-Fly Constraints Figure 1 – Locking a Constraint …

Understanding Design Intent

Design Intent in Sketcher is used to create, constrain, and dimension a sketch in a manner that causes it to update predictably if modified. • Design intent is captured in sketches by: – How it is constrained. – How it is dimensioned. • Capture design intent by using Sketcher to: …
