Constrains the angle between two lines or straight polyline segments; also constrains the angle of an arc or polyline arc. (This command is equivalent to the Angular option of the DIMCONSTRAINT command.)
Accessing the Command
command bar: dcangular
menu bar: Parametric | 2D Constraints | Angular
ribbon: Parametric | 2D Constraints | Angular
toolbar: 2D Constraints |
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select first line or arc or [3Point] <3Point>: (Select a line or straight polyline segment, or an arc or polyline arc segment, or else press Enter to select the 3Point option)
The angle of the entity is now constrained, although the entity can still be moved, rotated, and so on.
Select first line
When you select a line or straight polyline segment, prompts you:
When you select an arc or a polyline arc segment, prompts you
Creates an angular constraint between three valid constraint points. Prompts you:
The abbreviation for this option is 3P.
DimConstraint - applies a dimensional constraint to an entity or between constraint points on entities; converts associative dimensions to dynamic dimensions.
GeomConstraint - applies geometric relationships between entities and/or valid constraint points on entities.
DcAligned - constrains the distance between two points.
DcConvert - converts an associative dimension to a dimensional constraint.
DcDiameter - constrains the diameter of a circle or an arc.
DcHorizontal - constrains the horizontal distance (X-distance) between two points with respect to the current coordinate system.
DcLinear - constrains the horizontal distance (X-distance) or vertical distance (Y-distance) between two points with respect to the current coordinate system.
DcRadius - constrains the radius of a circle or an arc.
DcVertical - constrains the vertical distance (Y-distance) between two points with respect to the current coordinate system.
ConstraintBar - controls the display of the constraint bar of entities.
DcDisplay - allows to set dimensional constraints to be displayed or hidden.
DelConstraint - removes all dimensional and geometrical constraints from an entity.
CleanUnusedVariables - purges variables not used in constraint expressions and not linked to dimensions.
-Parameters - manages 2D dimensional constraint parameters and user variables in the current drawing.
