By the way, the TAN TAN TAN circle tool doesn't seem to like 3D elements at
different elevations. Can you give it a go with the file I posted?

Hi Neil,

Saw those requests and thought here's an idea for a custom program
pending Autodesk doing something.

I may have some time available mid year to entertain myself with it.

Laurie Comerford

It appears that you can't create it exactly tangent, but you can get REALLY close.

Beats erasing and redrawing... most likely.

Basically, just draw a polyline, create the circle, erase the polyline.

No worries. In figuring it out, I learned something new myself.

I think some custom tools would be a really handy for this stuff Laurie. I
seem to run into this a lot.

Not sure if you have control over how the field crew obtains the shots but the one point curve is designed for this situation. It is mentioned in several of the AU screencasts on field to finish and is shown about half way down on the "Curve Segment Codes" page in Help.
