Q - question

Using AutoCAD constraints to clean a drawing.

A - answer You can use AutoCAD geometric constraints to clean-up your inaccurately sketched drawings. If your lines are not exactly parallel or not exactly perpendicular, horizontal or vertical, you can "magically" rectify them with a single command.

Use the AUTOCONSTRAIN command to automatically add geometric constraints to your drawing. If you want the constraints just for the clean-up, remove them afterwards with the DELCONSTRAINT command - the geometry will stay corrected.
