# Rectangle – Alphacam #2

# Rectangle in Alphacam

Another basic geometry, as often used as a line, is a rectangle. To draw a rectangle in Alphcam select **Geometry | Rectangle**.

To draw a rectangle, we must specify the coordinates of the points defining the diagonal of the rectangle. We can do it in different ways. Either click on any two points in the Alphacam workspace, or enter the coordinates of the vertices of the rectangle’s diagonal on the command line. There also appears the **RECTANGLE: Pick First Corner**.

Enter **X 0 Y 0**.

Now we have to specify the second point. On the command line, we have the command **Pick Second Corner**.

Enter **X 400 Y 300**.

The rectangle has already been drawn, but the **Rectangle** command is still active. To cancel the **Rectangle** command, click the right mouse button (**RMB**) or the **Esc** key.
