Implement horizontal/vertical constrains for points in sketches

The problem that this feature will solve:

If you draw 2 circles and would like their centers to stay horizontal or vertical it is not possible by simply adding a constrain.

The same applies to vertexes of non-perpendicular corners.

Brief description of the outcomes that you expect from this feature:
The workflow would be streamlined and a little more intuitive in my opinion.
Many other CAD-systems also support this, for instance:

  • FreeCAD
  • Alibe Atom
  • SolidWorks
  • Autodesk Fusion 360
  • Onshape

That makes this functionality kind of standard of the industry.

What is is that you can’t achieve without this feature?

  • Working without this function irritates my personal workflow.
  • Coming from one of the CAD-Systems above that frustrates and lowers the UX
  • as a workaround I could add a construction-line or -axis, but that makes the sketch a little less lean and clean. The less elements we need in a sketch, the better it is!

If you need additional Information, let me know it.

Cheers Matt


Good point.

Currently the best way to do this.
