Intersection of a 2D circle and a plane.

Post by Cy Goughman » Wed Oct 09, 2019 10:49 am

Some older software we used in the 90's was able to construct points by intersecting a 2D circle and a plane. This was useful for finding the location of a point at a 2D radial distance from a center where the circle pierced a plane... say, a datum target, for example. Could this be put on the 'wish list?' Thanks.

I will make the request internally in our system and prioritize for next major release of CMM-Manager (3.10)

Although I did find a way to do this... it takes 10 extra Construction steps to get there. See image and attached Project file.

Thanks! I'll save this for a 'million-dollar point' measurement.
