Draws a rectangle.



1 first corner
opposite corner

Options are:

CHAMFER  Specify two numbers, for distances on the two sides
FILLET   Specify one number for fillet radius

The specifications for the CHAMFER and FILLET options remain in effect until you reset them; therefore, you can draw any number of rectangles with the same chamfer or fillet. You can also apply CHAMFER and FILLET separately after the rectangle is drawn.

Each side of the rectangle is a separate entity.

RECTANG is an accepted abbreviation for RECTANGLE.
