3p circle tangent to 3 objects

Post by Jason Skarda » Wed Jan 08, 2003 10:01 pm

Hey folks,

I was just wondering if anyone knows if there are any plans in future upgrade to add the ability to create 3p circle that is tangent to three objects. I use this function in autocad all the time and it is soooo helpful when trying to rebuild centerlines on old roads. I was also wondering if you all ever plan on adding a best fit line and curve routine that would allow you to weight certain points based on a report of some sort. This would allow you to choose whether to hold a certain point or to give it less influence on the curve that you are creating.

After selecting to draw a circle you are given several options including one called TTT - this will draw a circle tangent to three lines, arcs, circles or some combination of the three I would assume.

Line/Curve fit routines

What you have asked for is on a long list of suggestions that the developement staff are going through to see what will be included on the next version. We will have to wait and see what all makes the cut.
