  • Constructing a cone

    Is it possible to construct a cone from two circle's in a program? I have a part that i'm trying to find the diameter at a certain height on an angle. So i figured i could construct a cone and find the intersecting diameter, but it's not letting me construct a cone. It is telling me the math doesn't work because the two diameters are perpendicular to the plane?

    I think a cone needs 3 or more circle to construct.

    I was wrong
    Tried and didn’t work. I hit F1 and yes need to build from points or auto feature.

    Good one Nano

    sigpic Now I see it from your prospective.

      I don't think you can construct a cone from two circles. It has to be points. You can try extracting the hit points from the circles you created and use those to create a cone.

        Use AUTO cone for the feature, create a plane at the top surface where the cone ends. Offset the plane to the depth you want and make a constructed circle ?

          Thank you everyone the points from the circles worked
