Constrains entities vertically.

BricsCAD Lite; BricsCAD Pro; BricsCAD Mechanical; BricsCAD BIM



Vertically constrains the distance between two points, or the length of an entity.

Note: “Vertical” means the constraint lies in the Y direction of the current coordinate system.


There are two methods to begin constraining vertically:

  • By distance: constrain the distance between two entities vertically.
    Note: Valid constraint points are found at the same geometric locations as entity snaps, such as the ends and middles of lines, centers and quad points of circles and arcs, and so on.
  • By entity: constrain an entity vertically.
    Note: Constrains any of the following entities vertically: Line, Arc, Polyline segment, Polyline arc segment.

To constrain the distance between two entities vertically, select a valid constraint point on each entity and enter the constraint distance. The value controls the distance between the two entities.
