Instant2D for Changing Sketch Dimensions

You can use Instant2D to dynamically manipulate sketch dimensions in sketch mode. You can click a dimension and quickly edit its values without clicking Rebuild to reset the geometry.

With the enhanced Instant2D you can:
  • View the dimension handles or Instant2D Rulers while selecting dimensions in sketch mode.
  • Edit dimensions for any dimension type in the dimension input value box by clicking a dimension value.
    Instant2D in sketch mode is available for 2D and 3D sketches.
