In this video, learn that non-sketch circles and corners have many applications, especially when dealing with non-planar geometry.
- [Instructor] I'm going to talk about circles and corners now.…You'll see Circle, Corner on the toolbar…laying next to one another.…So I'll select on the Circle icon.…Once again, we have a pull-down…with all the various methods of creating a circle.…I'm going to cover a few of these.…So the first one is Center and radius.…So first we select our Center point and a Support,…in this case I'm going to pick this surface.…You can pick a plane as well.…Now by default what the system does after I pick a surface…is that it takes a plane tangent…to the surface at that point,…so right the circle is not necessarily touching the surface,…but if I want the circle to touch a surface…I can say Geometry on support…and it lays it down on the surface,…but I'll just take that back off again.…
Now you can see I have a Radius value.…I can make this bigger or smaller.…I also have a partial circle, as you can see.…You can swing this around.…Or I can say I want a complete circle…and there we have it.…If I turn on Axis Computation…what it'll do is it'll actually generate…
