...cool! that would include general cases..
well, maybe the previously discussed kind of restrictions could help with some "simple" cases...
as horizontal/vertical distance constraints do instead of the most general distance restriction...

now i'm wondering if i sent the correct version of the file ...
But it isn't really interesting if it flips or not. It is interesting if it can flip, i.e. if it has a unique solution or not. Only then we can be absolutely sure that it does not flip. In your example giving any length can lead to ambiguities if not enough of the segments are fixed, i.e. you have to apply a length constraint, albeit a proportional one to all but one segment.
Well, I think that one way of preventing flipping sketches is by keeping the inequality relations between the parameters that could be involved in a possible flipping.chrisb wrote: ↑Mon Apr 20, 2020 6:10 pmBut it isn't really interesting if it flips or not.
