Summary

Lines that extend to infinity, such as xlines, can be used to create construction and reference lines, and for trimming boundaries.

List of Prompts

The following prompts are displayed.

Specify a point or [Hor/Ver/Ang/Bisect/Offset.

Point

Specifies the location of the infinite line using two points through which it passes.

The xline is created through the specified point.

Hor

Creates a horizontal xline passing through a specified point.

The xline is created parallel to the X axis.

Ver

Creates a vertical xline passing through a specified point.

The xline is created parallel to the Y axis.

Ang

Creates an xline at a specified angle.

Angle of Xline

Specifies the angle at which to place the line.

Reference

Specifies the angle from a selected reference line. The angle is measured counterclockwise from the reference line.

Bisect

Creates an xline that passes through the selected angle vertex and bisects the angle between the first and second line.

The xline lies in the plane determined by the three points.

Offset

Creates an xline parallel to another object.

Offset Distance

Specifies the distance the xline is offset from the selected object.

Through

Creates an xline offset from a line and passing through a specified point.
