Where can I find this command?

Curve

Line

Single Line

Line Segments

Perpendicular from Curve

Perpendicular to 2 Curves

Tangent from Curve

Tangent to 2 Curves

Tangent, Perpendicular

Angled

Bisector

From 4 Points

Normal to Surface

Vertical to CPlane

The Line command draws one line segment.

Steps

1. | Pick the start of the line. |

2. | Pick the end of the line. Use object snaps to reference existing geometry. |

BothSides

The BothSides option draws the object on both sides of the start point, creating the object twice as long as you indicate.

The Normal option draws the line normal to a location on a surface.

Normal option

IgnoreTrims=*Yes/No*

If Yes, surface trims are ignored. When the marker misses the untrimmed surface, the no-access cursor is shown.

The Angled option draws the line at a specified angle from a reference line.

The Vertical option draws the line vertical to the construction plane.

The FourPoint option draws the line using two points to establish direction and two points to establish length.

FourPoint steps

1. | Pick the start of the base line (reference location). |

2. | Pick the end of the base line (second reference location). |

3. | Pick the start of the line. |

4. | Pick the end of the line. |

The Bisector option draws the line that bisects a specified angle.

The Perpendicular option draws the line perpendicular to or from a curve.

Perpendicular options

Point

The Point option allows you to pick a point that is near, but not on a curve, overriding the built-in object snap.

FromFirstPoint

The FromFirstPoint option forces the line to go through the first picked point on the curve instead of allowing the point to slide along the curve.

2Curves

The 2Curves option restricts the line to be perpendicular to two curves.

The Tangent option draws the line tangent from a curve.

Tangent options

Point

The Point option allows you to pick a point that is near, but not on a curve, overriding the built-in object snap.

FromFirstPoint

The FromFirstPoint option forces the line to go through the first picked point on the curve instead of allowing the point to slide along the curve.

2Curves

The 2Curves option restricts line to be tangent to two curves.

Extension

Extends a curve with a line.
