Location: Create>Arc>Center/Tangent

Use this feature to create an arc tangent to a selected entity with its center at an indicated position. When creating arcs of this type, keep these things in mind:

  • In 2D construction mode, the arc is created in the construction plane, at the active depth when you indicate the center.

  • In 3D construction mode, the arc is created in the plane of the selected entity and the indicated position.

Using the Function:

  1. Select Center/Tangent from the Create>Arc submenu.

  2. Enter a start angle.

  3. Enter an end angle.

  4. Select the tangent entity near the point of tangency.

  5. Indicate a center position for the arc.

NOTE: The indicated center point cannot be on the selected tangent entity.
