The Draft Join.svg Draft Join command joins Draft Lines and Draft Wires into a single wire. This command is the counterpart of the Draft Split command.


  1. The end points of the Draft Lines and/or Draft Wires to be joined must be exactly coincident. If required first adjust points to ensure that this is the case.
  2. Select two or more Draft Lines and/or Draft Wires.
  3. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Draft Join.svg Draft Join button.
    • Select the Modification → Draft Join.svg Join option from the menu.
    • Use the keyboard shortcut: J then O.

To join wires use the join_wires method (introduced in version 0.19) of the Draft module. This methods replaces the deprecated joinWires method. This method returns None.

  • wires is a list of wire objects to be joined.

p2 = App.Vector(500, 0, 0)
p3 = App.Vector(500, 500, 0)
p4 = App.Vector(0, 500, 0)

wire1 = Draft.make_wire([p1, p2])
wire2 = Draft.make_wire([p2, p3])
wire3 = Draft.make_wire([p3, p4])
wire4 = Draft.make_wire([p4, p1])

Draft.join_wires([wire1, wire3, wire2, wire4])
