Constrains the angle between line or polyline segments, the angle swept out by an arc or a polyline arc segment, or the angle between three points on objects.

When you enter or edit an angle value that is either negative or is greater than 360 degrees, the number entered is stored for the expression (for example, 390), but the value displayed is based on the formatting of the units (for example, 30 if decimal degrees).

When an expression with variables evaluates to greater than 360 or less than -360, the constraint value is displayed in the Parameters Manager based on the units of the drawing.

Command: DCANGULAR or DCA

The following prompts are displayed.

Line
Selects a line object.

First Line
Specifies the first line to be constrained.

Second Line
Specifies the second line to be constrained.

Dimension Line Location
Determines where the dimension line is located on the constrained object.

Arc
Selects an arc and constrains the angle.

Dimension Line Location
Specify dimension line location.

3Point
Selects three valid constraint points on the object.

Angle Vertex
Specifies the angle vertex, which is at the centerpoint of the constraint.

First Angle Constraint Point
Specifies the first angle endpoint of the arc.

Second Angle Constraint Point
Specifies the second angle endpoint of the arc.
