M10 - 5 Tech 106: Design Intent and Materials in AMT A Square? What is a square? Square in SolidWorks 1. Draw a rectangle 2. Select one edge and define length using SmartDimension 3. Select the perpendicular edge and set relationship with the previous edge as ‘equal’ 4. Result: square! A special rectangle with the sides and its diagonals meet at right angles; or All sides have equal size |AB| = |BC| = |CD| = |DA|
