    Default Inaccurate Nearest Osnap

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi
    My "Nearest" osnap is not even close to snapping to my circle.
    All other snaps are working fine, nearest snap are working on lines and rectangles, not at all on circles.
    Whats going on?

    Image attached.

    This may by only a visual representation problem - call the REGEN command and try again.

    An it is not visual since the intersection snap will not accept this inaccuracy either, and if i zoom in the Snap symbol dissapears out of the view.

    Did you do the REGEN before or after you zoomed in?

    Perhaps you could explain what it is you are trying to do, and whether it involves zooming in a lot.

    I tried the REGEN before and after, again and again, I am simply trying to snap the center og a circle to the nearest on another circle, it ends up almost 1mm of at my current circle size.
    Not that much Zooming realy.

    If I try it on any other thing than a Circle it works, not at all on circles, and it seems like the inaccuracy is dependent on the size of the circle, biger circle means its farther of its spot and so on.

    Also, te inaccuracy is always away from the center.

    I usually trust the Osnaps, but try snapping the centre of circle B, nearest to the circle A. Now take the distance between the centre of circle B, perpendicular to the circle A, and you will probably find that the distance is zero.

    Perhaps you could post a drawing with those two circles in it.

    Do you know how to do a transparent REGEN?

    Why aren't you snapping from center on one circle to center on the second circle? I don't understand why you are using "nearest" on the second circle. "Nearest" to what?

    Your crosshairs don't look right. Could this be something to do with your view or UCS?
