Drawing a Circle

Use the Circle tool to draw a circle in space or on another object.

Keyboard shortcut: C

To draw a circle, first, choose the center point and then specify the circle radius. Next, the circle automatically becomes a face.

Editing a Circle

You can also modify a circle you have already placed by right-clicking it and choosing Edit Circle at the bottom:

The Edit Circle grips will appear, allowing you to change the size or orientation of the circle. The new circle will appear as an outline while editing.

You'll see a few grips appear:

  • The center grip controls the origin of the circle

  • The grip along the edge controls the radius of the circle

  • The grip at the top controls the normal/orientation of the circle

To complete the edit, exit the tool by clicking into empty space or hitting ESC. The new circle will replace the current circle.
