  • Creating a point....

    How would I create a point at center of a radius.

    You could rotate to that line up there, translate to the radius and then construct a generic line that vectors in the direction you show the point. Construct a pierce point with the generic line and the circle then you have it. If the pierce point ends up on the wrong side of the circle then you need to reverse the vector of your generic line.

    Hope your tolerances aren't too tight.

      They're not, just running into alot of parts asking for a simular dim this way.
      Thanks

        Also that could be a {distance minus radius} if normal to an axis vector.
