Using Point at Intersection of Arc and Line Tool

on Sat Oct 21, 2017 9:26 pm
Hi everyone,

I'm trying to create a point along a line using the measurements of an arc. But it is making the point in the wrong direction. I need the point to be to the left of B9, but it's placing it to the right of B9. Is there any way that I can change the direction?



Thank you for any help Surprised

Can you explain again, because i don't understand what you are trying to achieve.

Yesterday, I was trying to place a point on the line x3 to A12, close to the point x3, using the  Point at Intersection of Arc and Line Tool. I tried putting the the line x3 to A12 and A12 to x3,  but it kept putting the point A28 close to A12 instead of close to x3. Eventually, I made an Arc across the line x3 to A12 and used the Point Intersect Curve and Axis Tool to place point B12 (A28 in the other image), as in the image below:



Today, when I tried to repeat the problem, the Point at Intersection of Arc and Line Tool made the point perfectly, as you can see point A29 in the following image, so I don't know why it didn't work yesterday:

Hi,

I checked your pattern. The tool works like expected. All these stupid let's rename all tools broke your expectations. See closely the tool icon. It seeks tangent to arc (actually circle) on segment. And always return one point. If it finds two it try to guess where is right point. And select closest to start of segment point.
