4 Screen Layout Sketch panel toolbar 3D Indicator Message / Status bar Graphics window Take a few minutes to look at this screen Standard Toolbar Pull Down Menus
5 Select the line icon from the 2D Sketch Panel (Note all points at this stage are approximate) Select Point 1 a point to start the line move the mouse and select Point 2. Ensure the line is straight, look out for the horizontal constraint symbol. Point 1 Point 2 Horizontal Constraint symbol
6 When we move the mouse and select point 3 we should notice the perpendicular constraint symbol. Point 3 Perpendicular constraint symbol
7 Select point 4 by moving the mouse horizontally. Notice the Parallel constraint symbol, this means the new line is parallel to the first one. Point 4 Parallel constraint symbol
8 Select point 5 look out for the parallel symbol to indicate that this vertical line is parallel to the line drawn between points 3 and 4. Point 5 Point 6 As you select point 6 notice the parallel constraint symbol. Look out for the hidden line this tells us that point 6 is aligned with point 1. Select point one again to finish the Closed shape. To end drawing lines press Esc key. Starting point Hidden line means alignment between point 1 and point 6. parallel constraint symbol
9 From the 2D Sketch menu select the General Dimension icon. Select the line to dimension. Move the MOUSE upwards notice the dimension and line follows the mouse pointer. Select a position similar to the position shown. A Edit dimension box will appear. The dimension will be shown highlighted press the delete key. Type 90 you dont have to add mm after the dimension.
