To Apply a Tangent 2D Constraint

  1. Select the Tangent 2D Constraint tool ( Drawing > Constraints > 2D ).

  2. Select a linear or non-linear (elliptical or circular) segment.
  3. Select a non-linear segment if you have selected a linear segment in the first step (at least one of the selection must be a curve).

    The two selected segments are now tangent to each other.

    Note: For two segments to be tangent, they must be on the same plane.
