In this article on Mechanicalland, we will show you how to create circles that tangents to 2 objects in AutoCAD® drawing scheme by entering a Radius value to it. In Mechanicalland, we expressed the whole commands of AutoCAD® 2D, so you can learn the use of AutoCAD® 2D by reading articles from Mechanicalland about AutoCAD®’s drawing commands. This kind of circle drawing method is very useful to obtain circles that are tangent to other drawing features. It is very hard to obtain this kind of circle without the Tan, Tan, Radius circle command in AutoCAD®.

How To Use Tan, Tan, Radius Circle Command In AutoCAD®?
Think about a situation occurred that in which you need to draw a circle that must be tangent to these lines as shown by a green line above in AutoCAD®. In these kinds of cases, you need to use the Tan, Tan, Radius circle command in AutoCAD®.
You need to click on the pop-up menu as shown by the green arrow above then click on the Tan, Tan, Radius circle command as shown by the green arrow above to create circles in AutoCAD®.
After entering the Tan, Tan, Radius circle command, you need to specify the first tangent feature as shown by the green arrow above by clicking on it.
After clicking on the first tangent, you need to select the second tangent line in the Tan, Tan, Radius circle command in AutoCAD® as shown by the green arrow above.
After specifying the second tangent line in the Tan, Tan, Radius command, enter a Radius value as shown in the green box above to create the desired circle geometry in AutoCAD®.
So we entered a Radius value of 1000 and we obtained a geometry like above.
Drawing these kinds of circle geometries is very easy as that with Tan, Tan, Radius command in AutoCAD®.
