Accessing the Command
command bar: dcdiameter
menu bar: Parametric | 2D Constraints | Diameter
ribbon: Parametric | 2D Constraints | Radius | Diameter
toolbar: 2D Constraints |
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select arc, circle or curved polyline segment: (Select a circle, arc or polyline arc segment)
Specify dimension location: (Select a point to position the dimension line)
Dimension text <xx.xx>: (Type a value, or else press Enter to accept the current value)
The diameter of the entity is now constrained, although the entity can still be moved, rotated, and so on.
|Select arc, circle or curved polyline segment||
Select one entity:
|Specify dimension location||Pick a point to position the dimension line|
Enter an option:
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.
DcAngular - constrains the angle between two lines or linear polyline segments; the total angle of an arc or an arc polyline segment; or the angle between three points on entities.
DcConvert - converts an associative dimension to a dimensional constraint.
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.
