Creating a Rectangle

Create a rectangle to be used in the construction of the horn.

  1. On the Construct tab, in the Create surface group, click the  Rectangle icon.
    Note: Default values are used on geometry creation dialogs to allow a preview of the primitive in the 3D view. You may change the values as required.
  2. Create a rectangle using the Base centre, width, depth definition method.
    1. Set Width equal to the defined variable, Width.
    2. Set Depth equal to the defined variable, Length.

    3. Click on the Width field to make it active.
      Tip: An active field allowing point-entry is indicated by a yellow background. Point-entry allows a variable or named points to be entered by pressing Ctrl+Shift+left click on a variable in the model tree.
      Note: The previously defined workplane (Workplane1) is used since it is the default workplane.
    4. Click Create to create the rectangle and to close the dialog.
