Sets options for modifying a straight segment of an existing path.
Displays the Sketch Properties Dialog Box, on which you can view properties for the path.
Displays the path in the active view and returns to the model with the place prismatic shape feature still enabled.
Cancels the changes you made and returns you to the model.
Modifies and moves the existing path. You can select the segment, turn, or multiple segments to which to make modifications.
Displays the Create Path ribbon to allow you to add segments to an existing path.
Defines the origin on the cross-section for prismatic shape construction.
Specifies that you are selecting the starting location of the move vector.
Specifies that you are selecting the ending location of the move vector.
Specifies the type of line for the current segment in the path. To change the segment type, click a new type in the Line Type list.
Path Type Options
Defines the line type for the segment to be a straight line.
Arc by 3 Points
Defines the line type for the segment to be an arc. To define the arc, you must click three points in the view.
Specifies that you do not want the current segment of the path to have a line associated with it.
Activates options for selecting a working plane for the path.
Working Plane Options
Defines the work surface as the XY plane.
Elevation Plane: East-West
Defines the work surface as the XZ plane.
Section Plane: North-South
Defines the work surface as the YZ plane.
Plane by Turn
Defines the work surface as the plane defined by an existing turn. You select the turn to set the plane.
Plane by Three Points
Defines the work surface using three points that you define.
Clears any work surfaces. The software does not project points that you place to any plane.
Delete Selected Items
Deletes the selected path segments.
Defines whether or not the length of the selected segment should remain constant while moving.
When locked , the software automatically modifies the turn points, along with the length and angle of adjacent segment, to remain connected to the moved segment. The length of the moved segment does not change.
When not locked , the software extends or shortens the associated segments to connect with the new position of the moved segment. The length of the moved segment can change.
