AutoCad 2D :: Draw Circle So That Line Becomes Tangent To It?

Feb 20, 2013

I’ve an already drawn inclined line from a fixed point (saypoint (0,2) on Y-axis). The inclination is also fixed (say 150 tothe horizontal). My objective is to draw a circle with one quadrant at a fixedpoint (say point (1,0) on X-axis), so that, the line becomes a perfect tangentto the circle. The diameter of the circle may vary to make the line perfecttangent to the circle.

AutoCad :: Draw 3rd Circle Tangent To 2 Circles

Oct 11, 2007

I can't control the location of a 3rd circle using ttr. I'm drawing two circles and then a 3rd tangent to both but I want the 3rd circle to be centered down below the two original ones and all it will do is be above them. See drawing.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Line Not Tangent

Jun 18, 2012

Working on Acad2012 3d Civil. I draw a circle of 4000' radius and another one of 2000' radius. I put a tangent line between the two circles and I do see the tangent symbol but when I zoom in real close, it's not. So now I can't trim the excess radius of the two circle. I do have a trim line pasted the two supposedly tangent points. Is this a CAD issue or is their a variable to change that actually makes the lines tangent.

AutoCad :: Place Line Tangent From The End Of Arc?

Nov 28, 2012

How does one draw a line tanget from the end of an arc.

I noticed the tangent snap stops at the end of the arc but one can still place a line beyond the end of the arc, thus no longer tangent.

AutoCad :: Snap Of Line At A Tangent To The Arc

Aug 16, 2011


i want to snap this line to where it would be at a tangent to the arc (as right), but as you see (left) when i hover with TAN snap it picks a tangent from the pick point, not from object's orientation.

at the moment i construct a tangent by rotating a copy of my line by 90°, and snapping it to centre of the arc. then extend out past arc, where the intersection is now the point i originally wanted to pick. make sense? gotta be a better way!

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Label Delta From A Curve To Non-tangent Line

Jun 19, 2012

I need to lable the delta of a PI in an alignment where one segment is an arc and the following is a non-tangent line.

Geometry points don't offer delta and Tangent Intersections won't label at PCs and PTs.

Is there an expression that can be used?

AutoCAD 2013 :: DIMRADIUS Line Extending Beyond Tangent Point

Feb 13, 2013

When inserting a DIMRADIUS in older versions of AutoCAD, the extent of the radius dim used to automatically stop at the tangent point along an arc. However, now in ACAD 2013 (and possibly other recent versions), a red 'extension' line is carried on beyond the tangent point, which I don't want. Is there a toggle that switches this off so that the radius dim stops wholly at the tangent point as before?

I've tried using endpoint snap to stop the dim at the tangent point, but the radius dimesion text is then placed on the outside of the curve rather than the inside where I want it.

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Tangent Line And Pass Through Two Points

Aug 20, 2012

We have a need to select a tangent line/polyline etc and then select two other points we would then like to have the program draw an arc through the two points and yet still be tangent to the initial line/polyline that we picked.  We don't care what the radius is as we believe there is only one solution anyway.  It would be wonderful if we could just use the Arc command and select start>Second Point> then just use the Tangent Osnap but I guess that is out of the question :-)

The only code that I have come across that even resembles this only allows for one point not two (STILL VERY HANDY AND VERY SLICK)

(defun near_vertex_arr (obj / dxf_obj e_next obj_vlax pt_sel par pt_first pt_snd i bulge)


How does everyone else hande this?  By they way... I dont care what language it is written in :-)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Tangent Assembly Constraint - Ellipse Surface To Line

Aug 26, 2013

Why can't Inventor constrain an ellipsoidal contour with a line? We have pressure cylinders which uses a 2:1 ellipse. These cylinder get welded to a base stand fixture. The surface of the ellipse nestles in between contact points of the base stand, in this case lines of geometry. Yet Inventor can't constrain them as such. Any good workflow (at the assembly level) so that we don't have to ground components and use the Analyze Interference tool to make sure we are right on the surfaces? I don't understand why it will work for a cylindrical surface but not an elliptical surface.

AutoCAD 2010 :: How To Draw A Circle With Diameter Of 1.24E -10m

Oct 1, 2012

What is the smallest object I can draw and "SEE" in AutoCAD? I was hoping to prove a point in my introductiory AutoCAD class, but it appears I have been lying!! I tried to draw a cirlce with a diameter of 1.24E-10m. The dot shows up, but I cannot zoom to it. I tried using an enormous zoom scale, but did not have any luck. I am almost positive my instructor introduced the capabilites of AutoCAD by drawing a full scale helium atom, and that was release 14. Is this still possible? Obviously the atom can be drawn, but what are the zoom limitations?
