Retroceder: Re: Retroceder: Re: Circle - 2 points and radius

If you know the triangle or can draw with tour known points, it then bisect each cusp and you get a center to trace a circle, hope this help.

Normally I use the perpendicular lines trick, and draw a circle tangent to those - my problem is that my circle isn't crossing at 90 degrees relative to the lines.  Basically its a triangle, I have the circle intersecting near a corner, so the center point is somewhere below and to the side.  I know the two points it will intersect the triangle at, and the radius of the arc between.



I think the command line version will work for me, I already know that I should be using it a lot more to simplify things, I just need to figure out the syntax and see if I can remember some of the math involved.  

Thanks for the help, I'll try it out now!

We can add one drawing method here.

The command line calculation gets tricky to get.
