In this challenge, we are going to be perfecting how to handle positioning and location in AutoCAD.

The Object SNAP mode will be important for this session, The exercise itself is an easy one, but you need to be a bit cautious while working on the project.

The use of the OFFSET command will be helpful and the ability to create a circle using the feature Tan, Tan, Radius.

I am not sure why it does not work for you. Try drawing a circle around the line of 20 units having that line as its diameter, and use the circle to create the tan-tan-radius instead of the line.
Hope you get it.

Hey Andreea….
I think Mark is right here……
I am getting the same result…..
Just tell me if i am wrong somewhere…

I don’t think that 150 rad. ARC is tangent at points A & B mentioned above. I think that its a simple ARC which can be constructed with the use of “ARC – Start, End, Radius” command, with A & B as start & end points resp. and 150 as radius.
