I need to create a point where a circle and a plane meet. I have tried everything I can think of. The point should be at the tangent point of the circle and plane. Any thought's on how I might do this.
Thanks
To add to Winston's reply, measure a line on the surface. Then construct a pierce point from the line and circle. If the point is on the opposite side of the circle than you want, construct a reverse line from the original line then pierce the reverse line and the circle.
In some older versions, you need to construct a cylinder from the circle(cast) then do the above.
I don't believe they are. I am still fairly new to this. I did some of the things mentioned here and started getting the results I was looking for. I created lines from the plane then did a peirce point to the circle. That seemed to do the trick. Thanks for all the help.
I have tried to upload a screenshot from dmis, but I don't think it worked ( or maybe it worked twice...hmmm) anyhow,
I have use the last circle I just measured in a prg for this screenshot.
You can create it as a point or a line, whichever suites your needs at this time
(I may have to practice my uploading skills - never used it before)
well, I got the picture in, but the quality is sooooo poor, it's living in a shoebox!

need help constructing a pierce point. when in create the pierce point it creates point in center of the circle not on the inside where I need it to be....
In 2016 cad++ I used to be able to construct a pierce point from an auto circle right on the tangency of the circle, in 2018 I noticed when I try this...
Any help is appreciated as I have been wrestling with this one for a while. Last time this issue came up we ended up using a comparator for the inspection....
