Description

The Sketcher SelectRedundantConstraints tool selects the redundant constraints in the sketch.

If such constraints exist in a sketch the Solver messages section of the Sketcher Dialog displays this message:

  • Redundant constraints: (#, #, #)

Where (#, #, #) are the indices of the constraints. Clicking the underlined text will select the redundant constraints.

Please note that a sketch can also have redundant constraints if this message is displayed:

  • Over-constrained: (#, #, #)

Usage

  1. There are several ways to invoke the tool:
    • Click the underlined text in the Sketcher Dialog as described above.
    • Select the Sketch → Sketcher visual → Select redundant constraints option from the menu.
    • Use the keyboard shortcut: Z then P, then R.
  2. The redundant constraints are selected.
  3. Optionally click in an empty area in the 3D view to clear the selection.

Notes

  • Redundant constraints must be removed from the sketch.
  • Instead of the proposed indices it is also possible to delete other constraints.
