Circle construction

N/A
Hi all,
I'm a new user of Solid Edge 2D Drafting ST3 (free).
At the office where I do my job, I usualy use construction lines to prepare my drawing.
If I want to make a circle tangent to 3 elements, I can do it very easely.
But I don't see this possibility in Solid Edge, which I use at home.
(Please see the attached picture to well understand)
Is somebody could help me or tell me how can I do that ?
Many thanks in advance.
Vincent.

Re: Circle construction

The easiest way to do this is to place the circle tangent to one line.
Then add the tangent constraints between the circle and the other two lines.
Make sure you have Maintain relationships and Relationship Handles turned
on.
