Co-linear constraint (by Samuel Schlatter)
Hi All,

I used to use Solidworks to make most of my 2D vector drawings. I am now trying to use SolveSpace because it does everything I need without the additional clutter and problems that come with a large program like Solidworks. Not to mention the endless updates without any actual improvement in performance or features.

Unfortunately I am finding really hard to think in a Solvespace kinda way since I have been using Solidworks for such a long time. One thing that I have not found an answer to online is the colinear constraint. At the moment I make colinear constraints by drawing a construction line and making it parallel to the lines that need to be co-linear.

Is there a better way?

Best,
Sam

Your method is the only work around I can think of.

Constrain both endpoints of line A to lie on line B, no construction geometry needed.

Never thought that would work if line A lies beyond line B but it does.
