In the previous Basics post, we discussed How to Draw a Tangent Line in AutoCAD, today we are going to expand on that topic and take a look at **How to Draw a Tangent circle**.

The concept is pretty easy, just drawing a circle between two lines/objects. Another drawing task might be to create circle tangent to 3 different lines/objects. Without further reading, let’s draw those circles.

#### Tangent to two objects and specified Radius

Just follow these 5 Simple Steps:

- First, start
**Circle**command in the program. - Then, type
**TTR**(For Tangent Tangent Radius)- Or you can start
**Tan Tan Radius**Option from the**Draw**menu under**Home**Ribbon Tab.

- Or you can start
- Now, AutoCAD will prompt to select a point on the object for the
**first tangent**of the Circle. - After you’ve selected the first object, select the
**Second**one. - AutoCAD will now ask for a Radius value. Just type in the desired
**Radius**and the circle is ready!

#### Tangent to three objects

When using this method we would be able to select three lines/objects for our circle to be tangent to. This time the software will automatically calculate the needed radius and will draw the Circle using it.

The steps are as follows:

- First, start
**Tan, Tan, Tan**command from the**Draw**menu under**Home**Ribbon Tab. - Now, AutoCAD will prompt to select a point on the object for the
**first tangent**of the Circle. - Now, AutoCAD will prompt to select a point on the object for the
**first tangent**of the Circle. - After you’ve selected the first object, select the
**Second**and then the**Third**one.
