tangent/tangent/radius

hello everyone,

i cannot draw a tangent/tangent/radius arc in sketcher. in modeling
part it is easy. there is curves toolbar and you can find everything
you need there. but they are not defined in sketching i think because
you cannot assign them as boundaries while trimming.So how can i draw a
tangent/tangent/radius arc in SKETCHER?(i tried circle or arc by 3
points but still i cannot do it)

if you can do it in modeling, why don't you just add the curves to your sketch?

eolceroglu,
when you draw a set of curves and want to position a new curve with tangency constraing press and hold the left mousebutton until the look of the pointer changes. Release the button and move your mouse in any direction (horizontal/vertical). A new type of circle with a cross appears which lets you draw an arc with tangency.

Regards,
Joru
