  • Circle between tangents

    How can I put circle between two axis (tangents) about specific radius?

    I don't know about Quindos, but dph51 purposed a solution on PC-DMIS which should work in this case :
    Construct to lines // to axes at the specified radius, then intersect them and create a circle centered on the intersection point.

          AndersI : Cheers, Anders !
          I typed CAXTCICI on google, this is the result :

          (even if CICI could be for circle circle !)

            I can't read that document (browser just hangs forever), but I realise it is a command in QUINDOS, I just couldn't resist commenting...

          It's not a joke, so it makes your first answer very funny !

            The command you need to use is CONCT2D (connect 2D elements). If you input your two axes (lines) as element 1 & element 2 with the diameter of your tangential circle as Value 2, you will get 4 potential results (since there are 4 possible contact locations for a circle tangential to 2 lines), so you need to enter 4 names in the result element(s) box (separated by commas). The Command should look something like this when all entries are complete

            Code:
            CONCT2D (NAM=(RES(1),RES(2),RES(3),RES(4)), CSY=REFR$CSY, RES=CIR, TYP=, EL1=AXI(1), EL2=AXI(2), VL2=20)
