Sketching Infinite Lines

You cannot convert an infinite length line to a finite length line. However you can convert a finite length line to infinite length.

To create lines of infinite length:

  1. Click Line Tool_Line_Sketch.gif (Sketch toolbar) or click Tools > Sketch Entities > Line.
  2. In the Insert Line PropertyManager:
    1. Under Orientation, select an orientation.
    2. Under Options, select Infinite length.
  3. Click to sketch one or more lines.
  4. In the Line Properties PropertyManager, do any of the following:
    • Under Options, select For construction.
    • Under Parameters, set a value for Angle PM_angle.gif (if you selected As sketched or Angle as Orientation).
  5. Click PM_OK.gif to return to the Insert Line PropertyManager where you can change settings or exit the sketch.
