    Default Quick question Connect arc and line

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi all

    I was just wondering if someone could shed some light on what is the best way to draw an arc between a set arc and a straight line. The straight line is adjustable in length, but orientation is set. Likewise ideally the existing arc is set in length and orientation.

    Therefore I would like to fit a new arc between the two.


    Thanking you In advance!

    Is the joining arc of known radius?

    A picture (or drawing) of what you are trying to do would be an immense help.

    Well done for posting an image, but at that scale, both lines look to be straight.

    Perhaps a drawing containing only those two lines would be more useful, and can you show which points are fixed.

    The entity on the left looks to be a polyline FWIW.

    OP - If you do not need a true arc, but need a smooth connection, take a look at the BLEND command.
