Just a query and wondering if anybody knew.


I have 4 circles in a sketch measured over 140mm in a straight line. I place a line in between each and make them all equal. How does Solidworks do that sum? Surely one of the lines is not equal to the other two but it's so small and insignificant  it doesn't matter. Also which line does it choose to be smaller?


As I said just a query. This is not going to make or break my design. Only became aware because the sketch became over defined and I thought that might be the reason before realising it was something else. This is probably one of the first things software programmers smoothed out and I'm just being really slow.
