Q - question

Dimensional value or resultant geometry is inconsistent with existing configuration.

A - answer This error message displayed when attempting to create a parallel geometric constraint (align) between a curve and a text (GCPARALLEL) may be caused by two factors.

  1. The curve is a part of another existing constraint (e.g. tangential) and this contraint was not created properly. Remove the tangent-constraint.
  2. The aligned text is using TrueType fonts - this can cause constrain problems in some cases. Temporarily change the text to use a SHX font, create the constraint and then change the text back to TrueType.
