## Arcs Tangent to Other Arcs (4 Cases)

The problem in figure 4-36 is to draw an arc with a radius equal to AB, tangent to the circular arcs CD and EF. Set a compass to a spread equal to the radius...

The problem in figure 4-36 is to draw an arc with a radius equal to AB, tangent to the circular arcs CD and EF. Set a compass to a spread equal to the radius...

The problem in figure 4-35 is to draw a circular arc with a radius equal to AB, tangent to the circular arc CD and to the straight line EF. Set a compass to a...

Figure 4-34 shows a method that can be used regardless of the size of the angle formed by the lines. Again AB equals the given radius of the arc, and the problem is to...

Drawing a fillet or round comprises the problem of drawing a circular arc of a given radius tangent to two nonparallel lines. Figure 4-33 shows a method that can be used when the two...

A line that is tangent to a circle at a given point is perpendicular to the radius that intersects the point. It follows that one method of drawing a line tangent to a circle...

In figure 4-31 the problem is to draw a circle (or a circular arc) that passes through points A, B, and C. Connect the points by lines and erect perpendicular bisectors as shown. The...

Regular Hexagon in a Given Circumscribed Circle Many bolt heads and nuts are hexagonal (six-sided) in shape. Figure 4-26 shows a method of constructing a regular hexagon in a given circumscribed circle. The diameter...

To draw a triangle with three sides given, first draw a straight line AB, equal in length to one of the given sides (fig. 4-12). With A as a center, strike an arc with...

To bisect an angle means to divide it in half. If you know the size of the angle, you can bisect it by simply dividing the size by 2 and laying off the result...

There is a geometric construction for laying off, on another part of the same drawing or on a different drawing, an angle equal in size to one that is already drawn. This procedure, called...
