Hi!

I had spheres with the same diameter randomly drop in a cylindrical vessel. Then, I imported the sphere centers from CSV to Rhinoceros using Python and created the spheres in Rhinoceros from these coordinates.

Some of these spheres will touch the cylinder wall and I need to know the coordinates of these tangent points.

Is there a way for me to determine the tangent points between the cylinder wall and the touching spheres automatically by Python? If so, can you kindly direct me? Newbie here.

P.S. I will be dealing with around 800 spheres.

Thank you so much in advance! <3
