Sketcher Constrain Block


The Sketcher ConstrainLock tool applies Horizontal distance and Vertical distance constraints to points. If a single point is selected the constraints reference the origin of the sketch. If two or more points are selected the constraints reference the last point in the selection.

Continue mode

  1. Make sure there is no selection.
  2. There are several ways to invoke the tool:
    • introduced in version 1.0: If the Dimensioning constraints preference is set to Single tool (default): press the down arrow to the right of the button and select the Constrain lock option from the dropdown.
    • If this preference has a different value (and in version 0.21 and below): press the Constrain lock button.
    • Select the Sketch → Sketcher constraints → Constrain lock option from the menu.
    • introduced in version 1.0: Right-click in the 3D view and select the Dimension → Constrain lock option from the context menu.
    • Use the keyboard shortcut: K then L.
  3. The cursor changes to a cross with the tool icon.
  4. Select a single point.
  5. Two constraints are added.
  6. Optionally keep creating constraints.
  7. To finish, right-click or press Esc, or start another geometry or constraint creation tool.

Run-once mode

  1. Select one or more points.
  2. Invoke the tool as explained above.
  3. Depending on the selection two or more constraints are added.


  • There is no automatic prompt to edit the constraint values. If required values can be edited manually.
