  • Intersection of a line and a circle

    I am trying to create an intersection point using a line and a circle. (line 2 & circle 2 I am using the method below. The point is not even close to where I need it to be. Can someone explain this?
    1. Access the Construct Circle dialog box (Insert | Feature | Constructed | Circle).
    2. Select the Intersect option.
    3. Select the first feature. It must be either a circle, cone, cylinder, or sphere.
    4. Select the second feature. It must be a plane.
    5. Click the Create button

    in the example your have circle one selected, circle one does not appear to intersect with line 2. did you mean to select circle one?

      Circle 2 is only a partial circle. Open the attachment. I am trying to intersect the partial circle on the left with the line on the top of the part

        Where the dimension 5.00 & the 9.638, that is where I am trying o create the intersection.

          it appears you have the constructed point set up correctly except in your original screen shot you have circle one selected instead of circle 2.

            You have tried creating a Reverse Line and Intersection/piercing with that?
            Lately, it occurs to me
            What a long, strange trip it's been.

              I am very new to PC-DMIS Is there a way to create an intersection using the arc on the left hand side & the top outside line of the part?

                  Use a pierce point.

                  set direction of line in the direction you want.

                  think of a piecre point as shooting an arrow into a balloon. It will have 2 pierce points. An entrance and exit pierce point.

                  create a reverse line if the original line goes in the wrong direction.

                    When I made the line I took the points in the direction of the arc & the arc the points were taken in the direction of the line. In trying to create the point I selected pierce, the point was on the opposite of the direction of the line

                      You can construct a reversed line by Insert -> Feature -> Constructed -> Line..., select your line, select Reverse in the listbox.

                          Same question as in (the hijacked) thread here:
                          http://www.pcdmisforum.com/forum/pc-...e-intersection

                          Ariens Company - Roger and Zeros seem to share the same question.
