Draws a rectangle in the sketch

To activate command:

  • Home Ribbon Bar => Direct Sketch Group => Sketch Curve Gallery => Rectangle
  • Menu => Insert => Sketch Curve => Rectangle
  • Press “R” on the keyboard. (Shortcut “R”)

The rectangle dialogue box opens after the rectangle command activated. There are three different methods for drawing rectangles.

  1. By 2 Points: Draws a rectangle between two opposite corners of the rectangle. Rectangle edges are parallel to sketch x, y-axis.  When command active click the left mouse button for the first point. Then click the left mouse button again for the endpoint.
  2. By 3 Points: Draws rectangle on three points. Each point defines one corner of the rectangle. You can define a rectangle angle to a sketch axis by this method. You can draw a rectangle by defining the three corner points of the rectangle.
  3. From Center: Draws rectangle by defining a center point and angle of the rectangle. If the center point of the rectangle constraints to sketch origin, line endpoint, point, etc… rectangle center stays stable and changes on rectangle don’t change center point.
