The Sketcher Rectangular array command creates an array of selected sketcher elements.

  1. Select sketcher elements in task panel or in 3D view.
  2. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Rectangular array button.
    • Select the Sketch → Sketcher tools → Rectangular array option from the menu.
  3. Specify the options for the array in the dialog that opens.
  4. Press the OK button.
  5. Move the mouse in the 3D view towards the desired reference point.
    By keeping Ctrl pressed, the angle to the reference point can be fixed in steps of 5°. introduced in version 0.20
  6. Left-click in the 3D view to create the array.
  7. To set the distances between the array elements, edit the dimensional constraints of the array.


Rectangular array has the following options:

  • Colums: The number of columns for the array.
  • Rows: The number of rows for the array.
  • Equal vertical/horizontal spacing: If the vertical distance between the array elements should be the same as the horizontal distance.
  • Constrain inter-element separation: When this is checked, the distance between the array elements will be constrained.
    If you for example only know that you need a 23 x 15 mm array, use this option to later be able to change these constraints to the dimensions you need.
  • Clone: If selected, dimensional constraints are replaced by geometric constraints in the copies, so that any change in the original element is also reflected in the copies.
