Video Tutorial Geometric Constraint Tangent

Geometric Constraint Tangent is Constrains two curves to maintain a point of tangency to each other or their extensions. 

This command is equivalent to the Tangent option in GEOMCONSTRAINT.
Following are the valid constraint objects and points:
  • Line
  • Polyline segment
  • Circle, arc, Polyline arc, ellipse
  • Combination of circles, arcs, or ellipses
A circle can be tangent to a line even if the circle does not touch the line. A curve can be tangent to another even if they do not physically share a point.
