Rectangle by two points

Rectangle by two points


Rectangle is a special case of a closed polyline. The Explode command transforms polyline which rectangle consists of, into segments.

There are two ways to create a rectangle: by two and by three points.

Rectangle by two points

MouseOK    Ribbon: Home, Draw – Draw >  Rectangle by Two Points

MouseOK   Menu: Draw – Rectangle by > прямоуг 2Т Two points

MouseOK   Toolbar: Draw – прямоуг 2Т

KeyboardOK Hotkeys: CTRL+ALT+R


The command allows creating a rectangle from two opposite points.

Parameters of rectangle (length, width, area, rotation angle) can be specified and types of angles (right angle, with chamfer or rounded by radius) can be edited with this command.

Command options when a first corner point is specified:


Chamfer sizes for rectangle’s corner.


Current elevation.


Fillet of rectangle’s corners.


Current three-dimensional height.


Width of polyline to create a rectangle.

Command options when a second corner point is specified:


Area of rectangle when it is created by area and length or by area and width

After a value of area is specified a prompt is shown in a command line:

Calculate rectangle dimensions based on [Length/Width]<Length>:


Length     - Specifies length of rectangle.

Width       - Specifies width of rectangle.


Height and length of rectangle.


Rotation angle of rectangle by entering its value in the command line or specifying on the screen. The Pick Points option allows specifying a rotation angle by specifying two points on the screen.

Command prompts:

Specify first corner point or [Chamfer/Elevation/Fillet/Thickness/Width]:

Specify first corner (point 1).

Specify other corner point or [Area/Dimensions/Rotation]:

Specify second corner (point 2).
