Constrain curve to be parallel

The parallel constraint causes selected lines or ellipse axes to lie parallel to one another. In a 3D sketch, the parallel constraint is parallel to x, y, or z part axes unless you manually constrain to selected geometry.

  1. On the ribbon, click Sketch tab  Constrain panel  Parallel Constraint  .
  2. Click the first line or ellipse axis.
  3. Select a second line or ellipse axis.
  4. Continue to place parallel constraints, or do one of the following to quit:
    • Right-click, and select Done.
    • Press Esc.
    • Select another command.
