To add : 
The Equal constraint applies to the length or radii of sketchelements. Click Add Equal Constraint, then: •Two Lines, including the CADLine  or  •Two Arcs or Two Circles  or  •an Arc and a Circle 

Result : 
•The Lines become equal in length  or  •The Arcs become equal in radii 

Notes : 
•Click the two sketchelements, not their dimensions •Add a dimension to none or only one of the two sketchelements •You can make many sketchelements equal to one sketchelement 

To Delete : 
1.SHIFT+CLICK a sketchelement with an Equal Constraint The sketchelement and Equal Constraint show in the SelectionWindow. 2.Rightclick the Equal Constraint element in the SelectionWindow 3.Click Delete in the contextualmenu

TopTip If you want to make an array of equally spaced Points, then: 1.Add, endtoend, a number of Lines (use Coincident Constraint) 2.Add Equal constraints to the Lines 3.Add Coincident constraints to the Lines to make them collinear (select a Line and then a Point in the adjacent Line). The Lines become a long, straight, line with equally spaced Points' 4.Dimension the total distance or a single Line.
