When creating lines in Autodesk Inventor you may want to know how to create different types of lines.
How can I make lines parallel to each other or perfectly aligned with each other?
Creating lines in Autodesk Inventor is made simple using this toolbox pictured below:
Each option in the toolbox are as follows:
1. Coincident - Joins the ends of two lines together.
2. Aligned - Places two straight lines on top of each other.
3. Concentric – Makes circles share the same origin.
4. Lock - Constrains the entire selection (cannot move sketch).
5. Parallel - Makes lines parallel to each other.
6. Perpendicular - Makes lines perpendicular to each other.
7. Horizontal - Makes lines Horizontal.
8. Vertical - makes line Vertical.
9. Tangent - makes lines and circles tangent to each other
10. Smooth - This makes lines with staggered intersection smoother.
11. Symmetric - Makes lines symmetric around a construction line.
12. Equal - makes lines of equal dimensions.
By using these options you will be able to create parallel and perfectly aligned lines.
