Constrains circles, arcs, polyline arcs, ellipses, and elliptical arcs to have the same center point, making them concentric. (This command is equivalent to using the Concentric option of the GeomConstraint command.)
Note: The second entity that you select is moved to be concentric to the first entity.
Accessing the Command
command bar: gcconcentric
menu bar: Assembly | 2D Constraints | Concentric
ribbon: Parametric | 2D Constraints |
toolbar: 2D Constraints |
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select first entity: (Select a valid curved entity)
Select second entity: (Select a second valid curved entity)
Select first entity
Select a valid entity:
|Select second entity||Select a second valid curved entity; it is moved to be concentric to the first one -- both share the same center point, as shown below.|
After you place the constraint, icons appear near the entities indicating the type of constraint. If you do not see them, then use the ConstraintBar command to display them.
To remove a constraint, click the tiny x on the constraint bar.
GeomConstraint - applies geometric relationships between entities and/or points on entities.
Dimconstraint - applies a dimensional constraint to an entity or between constraint points on entities; converts associative dimensions to dynamic dimensions.
GcCoincident - applies a coincident geometrical constraint to two points or constrains a point to an entity.
GcCollinear - forces lines to be collinear.
GcEqual - constrains arcs and circles to the same radius, or lines to the same length.
GcFix - constrains points and entities at a fixed position.
GcHorizontal - constrains lines or pairs of points to lie parallel to the X-axis of the current coordinate system.
GcParallel - forces two lines to be parallel to each other.
GcPerpendicular - constrains two lines to lie perpendicularly to each other.
GcSmooth - forces a spline to maintain fluid geometric continuity with another spline, line, arc or polyline.
GcSymmetric - constrains two entities or points to lie symmetrically with respect to a selected line.
GcTangent - constrains two entities to maintain a point of tangency to each other or their extensions.
GcVertical - constrains lines or pairs of points to lie parallel to the Y-axis of the current coordinate system.
ConstraintBar - controls the display of the constraint bar of entities.
Delconstraint - removes all dimensional and geometrical constraints from an entity.
