Equidistant Relations

When you use the Segment tool in lines, arcs, or circles, an equidistant relation is applied to the sketch points.

The equidistant relation creates space between the sketch points on the line, arc, or circle. If you drag or resize the line, arc, or circle, the sketch points automatically adjust to remain equidistant along the segment.

Deleting any of the equidistant relations in a sketch point group deletes the entire relations group. After deleting an equidistant relation, the sketch points remain in their previous locations with a coincident relation to the entity onto which they were placed.
