ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD – Drawing rays

A ray is a line in three-dimensional space that starts at a point and extends to infinity.
Because rays extend to infinity, they are not calculated as part of the drawing extents.
The default method for drawing a ray is to select the start point of the ray and then specify its direction. You can draw a ray in any of the following ways:

•  Horizontal draws the ray parallel to the x-axis of the current
    user coordinate sys-tem (UCS).
•  Vertical draws the ray parallel to the y-axis of the current
•  Angle draws the ray parallel to a specified angle.
•  Bisect draws the ray perpendicular to an existing entity.
•  Parallel draws the ray parallel to an existing entity.

To draw a ray

1  Do one of the following:
   â€¢ Choose Insert > Ray.
   â€¢ On the Draw 2D toolbar, click the Ray tool ().
   â€¢ Type ray and then press Enter.
2  Specify the start point.
3  Specify the direction.
4  To complete the command, press Enter.
