Tangent to circle (by Andreas)
I can't wrap my head around the tangent constraint in Solvespace.

I want to create an object similar to the one in the attached image;
Two circles seemlessly joined by lines in tangent to the circles. (Hope I get the wording right).

Is this possible with Solvespace using constraints?

Solved it (by Andreas)
Ah, I can't use two circles.

I have to make two arcs of a circle.
Connect the end points by a line.
Select one arc and the line.
Apply the tangent constraint.
Repeat for the other end point.

Good!
