Defining Radial Dimensional Constraints

Use the DcRadial command to constrain the radius of a Circle, Arc, or curved PolyLine segment.

To define radial Dimensional Constraints:

  1. Click Constraints > Dimensional Constraints > Radial (or type DcRadial).
  2. Specify a curved entity (Circle, Arc, or curved PolyLine segment).
  3. Specify the dimension position.
  4. If necessary, edit the dimension parameter value.
  5. Press Enter or click in the graphics area.

  If you specify an entity for which diameter or radius constraint is already defined, you receive a message that the constraint already exists.


Command: DcRadial

Menu: Constraints > Dimensional Constraints > Radial
