Circle Tangent to two Lines

Post by matt-sims » Wed Oct 09, 2019 6:38 am

I was trying to do a quick measurement where I needed to construct a .250 diameter Tangent to two lines to get an over roll dimension. When I constructed the circle it put it in the wrong place and was wondering if its possible to tell it what Quadrant to place the circle in since basically 2 lines intersecting would create 4 Quadrants. Similar to the create point with line and circle where it gives you 2 options of where to place it.

Can you send me your project file or at least grab a screenshot that shows the construction? There is some login built into CMM-Manager that determines the quadrant automatically. There may be some adjustment you can make to help influence this behavior. Sending me project would be best option if that's possible. I'll PM you my email address.
