This tool is used to create a CAD Point by an Intersection by 2 Points with Bearing and Distance.
The video below will show how to create a CAD Intersection by 2 Points with Bearing and Distance.
Or continue down the page to see the CAD Intersection by 2 Points with Bearing and Distance create options.
This CAD Intersect 2 Points with Bearing and Distance option is found on the CAD Intersection Toolbar, and is the 5th option when the toolbar files out.
Or from the menu, Use: CAD => Intersection => 2 Points with Bearing and Distance
CAD Control Bar Options
The Point is created and placed using the details from the CAD Control Bar, these include,
String Name, Model, Colour, Z – Value, Linestyle, Weight and Tinable.

To create a point at the intersection of 2 Points with a Bearing and a Distance, initially pick and accept the first point for the bearing to start from.
If you know the bearing to enter, then hit the <spacebar> on the keyboard.
If you would like to use the dynamic bearing from the cursor position, then hit the <d> on the keyboard.
Type in the Bearing of 75 degrees, hit the <Enter> key to confirm and the bearing will be locked in from the first point.
Pick and accept the second point. As the cursor is moved away from the second point the proposed intersection points are displayed on the screen. The 2 proposed intersection points are displayed where the circle intersects with the bearing line from point one.
As the two possible solutions are displayed on the screen, to instruct 12d Model which one is required, select with a cursor pick on the screen next to the intersection solution required.
Then accept the point and type in the distance, and hit <Enter> to confirm it.
Use a String Inquire to check the details of the new point.
Note: Turn the model onto the screen if the point is not shown.
Note: If a second point is to be created the option is still active in the project until another option is selected, or it is cancelled. The user can select the next start position and use the option again.
Use the Measure Bearing/Distance option to check the newly created point.
