|In this task you will learn how to create a line.|
|You will need to display the Horizontal (H) and Vertical (V) fields in the Tools palette, as they are displayed optionally. To do this, go to Tools > Options > Mechanical Design > Drafting > Geometry tab and select the Show H and V fields in the Tools Palette option.|
|1. Click the Line icon from the Geometry creation toolbar.|
|The Tools palette appears, displaying the Start Point value fields:|
|2. Enter the line start
point coordinates. For example, H: 1.625in and V: 0in.
3. Press Enter.
4. Enter the end point
coordinates in the Tools Palette.
For example, H: 2.362in
|In this particular case, smartpicking is
used for creating the line.
The constraints in smartpicking are defined such that we can create a line parallel to one of the rectangle lines. In this case of smartpicking the parallelism symbol appears as shown here.
