Ellipse PropertyManager

The Ellipse PropertyManager controls the following properties of a sketched ellipse or partial ellipse.

To open this PropertyManager:

In an open sketch, select an ellipse.

Existing Relations

PM_relations_existing.gif Relations Displays relations inferenced automatically during sketching or created manually with Add Relations. When you select a relation in the list, a callout is highlighted in the graphics area.
PM_information.gif Information Displays the status of the selected sketch entity (Fully Defined, Under Defined, and so on).

Add Relations

You can add relations to the selected entity. The list includes only relations that are possible for the selected entity.


For construction Converts the entity to construction geometry.


You can specify any appropriate combination of the following parameters to define the ellipse if the ellipse is not constrained by relations. When you change one or more parameters, the other parameters update automatically. Some parameters are available only for a partial ellipse.
