Parabola PropertyManager

The Parabola PropertyManager controls the properties of a sketched parabola.

To open this PropertyManager:

In an open sketch, select a parabola.

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 parabola if the parabola is not constrained by relations. When you change one or more parameters, the other parameters update automatically.
