Description

The symmetrical constraint constrains two selected points to be symmetrical around a given line, i.e., both selected points are constrained to lie on a normal to the line through both points and are constrained to be equidistant from the line.

Operation

256

Select two points (vertexes) in the sketch and a line in the sketch. The selected points and the line will be dark green.

256

Click on the SymmetricalConstraint icon in the Sketcher toolbar or select the Constrain Symmetrical menu item from the Sketcher Constraints sub menu of the Sketcher (or Part Design) menu item. This will apply the constraint to the selected items.

256

This is a geometric constraint and has no editable parameters.

Usage

<WRONG> * 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. </WRONG>
