ARCTAN - Tangent ARC to Line Creation

Ever have a problem getting an arc to tangent a line or polyline just right? Been frustrated that you are unable to start out right but just can’t get the tangent to look perfect? Or maybe you did get that tangent to the right size, but as it turns out, it isn’t from the starting point you needed? Well, ARCTAN takes care of all that by taking all the guesswork out of drawing complex tangent arcs! Indeed, if it actually can be drawn with the starting point and radius you specified, ARCTAN will compute and automatically draw it for you in a jiffy!

Main features:

  • Draws an ARC object
  • Will utilize user specified radius value for Arc Draws arcs to either lines or polylines
  • Has options to select arc tangent point inside or outside of a specific line
  • Has the ability to indicate if user input radius value exceeds radius of picked point
