Create tangent to a 2D spline curve in Pro/E

  1. Nov 11, 2008 #1
    How can I create a line tangent to a spline curve interpolated with several points in 2D in pro/engineer wildfire2.

    place a tangent constraint, it must be there in the some menu

    There is a constraints box in the sketcher menu. In that box is a tangency constraint.
    The icon for the constraints is the 6th from the bottom.

    I already tried that.

    In pro/e with tangent constraint, the spline is not getting detected. My requirement is to create a circle tangent to a spline.
    Even I am not able to create a point located over the spline curve.
    Is there any other way to do it.
