Drawing lines

A line consists of two points: a start point and an endpoint. You can connect a series of lines, but each line segment is considered a separate line entity.

To draw a line

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > Line.
    • On the Draw 2D toolbar, click the Line tool ().
    • Type line and then press Enter.
  2. Specify the start point.
  3. Specify the endpoint.
  4. In the prompt box, choose Done to complete the command.

 

Start point (A) and endpoint (B).

If the last entity you drew was an arc, you can also draw a line tangent to and starting from the endpoint of the arc.

To draw a line as a continuation from the end of an arc

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > Line.
    • On the Draw 2D toolbar, click the Line tool ().
    • Type line and then press Enter.
  2. In the prompt box, choose Follow.
  3. Specify the length of the line.

 

Endpoint of previous arc (A) and length of the line (B).
