Ok… attached is a file showing a racetrack type oval and adjacent to it a plain ole straight line… why you guys call a straight line a curve beats me, but ok.
On the right side of the oval are two points.
What I would like to do is bring the oval over next to the line such that the two points on the oval are both exactly 8.5mm from the line… in other words put the right side of the oval along its lenth parallel to the straight line.
Now I could spend hours and probably get it… but an engineer or good draftsman would now how to go about this in a succinct manner or with an elegant understanding of the proper steps… can you demonstrate this for me.
