Infinite Line

Toolbar: Draw 2D > Infinite Line ()

Menu: Insert > Infinite Line

Keyboard: INFLINE

Alias: XL, XLINE

Experience Level: Intermediate

Draws an infinite line in both directions from a specified starting point.

 

  1. Specify a point through which the infinite line passes.
  2. Specify the angle of the infinite line.

Infinite line: Bisect Horizontal Vertical Angle Parallel <Point along Line>: To start drawing an infinite line using the default method, specify the point through which you want the infinite line to pass. To draw an infinite line in a horizontal direction, choose Horizontal. To draw an infinite line in a vertical direction, choose Vertical. To specify the angle of the infinite line, choose Angle. To draw an infinite line parallel to another entity, choose Parallel.

Direction: Specify the direction in which you want to draw the infinite line.

Direction: Specify the direction in which you want to draw another infinite line. The second infinite line is drawn through the same point as the first infinite line. You can continue to draw infinite lines by selecting the direction of the ray. To stop drawing infinite lines, right-click the mouse.

To draw an infinite line by bisecting a point or entity

Choose Bisect.

Entity <Vertex point>: Specify the vertex point through which you want the infinite line to pass. To select an entity to bisect, choose Entity.

Bisection angle start point: Specify the start of the angle.

Bisection angle endpoint: Specify the end of the angle.

To select an entity to bisect

 

  1. Select the point to bisect.
  2. Specify the start of the bisect angle.
  3. Specify the end of the bisect angle.

Choose Entity.

Select line, arc, or polyline segment to bisect: Select the entity you want to bisect.

To draw a horizontal infinite line along the x-axis

 

  1. Specify the point through which you want the horizontal infinite line to pass.

Choose Horizontal.

Location: Specify a point through which the horizontal infinite line passes.

Location: Specify the point for a second horizontal infinite line. You can continue to draw horizontal infinite lines by selecting the point through which the infinite line passes. To stop drawing infinite lines, right-click the mouse.

To draw a vertical infinite line along the y-axis

 

  1. Specify the point through which you want the vertical infinite line to pass.

Choose Vertical.

Location: Specify a point through which the vertical infinite line passes.

Location: Specify the point for a second vertical infinite line. You can continue to draw vertical infinite lines by selecting the point through which the infinite line passes. To stop drawing infinite lines, right-click the mouse.

To draw an infinite line by specifying its angle

 

  1. Specify the point through which you want the infinite line to pass, then specify the angle.

Choose Angle.

Reference <Enter angle (45°)>: To accept the current setting for the angle, press Enter, or enter a new value. To specify an entity to use as the reference point, choose Reference.

Location: Specify a point through which the infinite line passes.

Location: Specify the point for a second infinite line. You can continue to draw infinite lines by selecting the point through which the infinite line passes. To stop drawing infinite lines, right-click the mouse.

To draw in infinite line using an entity as the reference point for the angle

 

  1. Specify the entity that you want to use as the reference point for the angle.
  2. Specify the angle from the reference point.

Choose Reference.

Select reference entity: Specify the entity you want to use as a reference point for the angle.

Enter angle: Enter the angle from the reference point.

To draw a infinite line that parallels another entity

 

  1. Specify the entity you want to parallel.
  2. Specify the side for the infinite line.

Choose Parallel.

Through point <Distance for parallel infinite line> (2.5000): To accept the current setting for the distance you want the infinite line drawn from an entity, press Enter. To specify a point through which you want the infinite line to pass, choose Through point.

Select entity for parallel infinite line: Select the entity that you want the infinite line to parallel.

Side for parallel infinite line: Select the side of the entity where you want to draw the infinite line.

To select the through point

 

  1. Select the entity you want to parallel.
  2. Select the point through which you want the infinite line to pass.

Choose Through point.

Select entity for parallel infinite line:

Through the point: Specify the point through which you want the infinite line to pass.
