- Circle[ <Point>, <Radius Number> ]
- Yields a circle with given center and radius.
- Circle[ <Point>, <Segment> ]
- Yields a circle with given center and radius equal to the length of the given segment.
- Circle[ <Point>, <Point> ]
- Yields a circle with given center through a given point.
- Circle[ <Point>, <Point>, <Point> ]
- Yields a circle through the three given points (if they do not lie on the same line).

**Note:**See also Compass, Circle with Center through Point, Circle with Center and Radius, and Circle through 3 Points tools.

- Circle[ <Line>, <Point> ]
- Creates a circle with line as axis and through the point.
- Circle[ <Point>, <Radius>, <Direction> ]
- Creates a circle with center, radius, and axis parallel to direction, which can be a line, vector or plane.
**Example:**`Circle[ <Point>, <Radius>, <Plane> ]`

yields a circle parallel to the plane and with perpendicular vector of the plane as axis.

- Circle[ <Point>, <Point>, <Direction> ]
- Creates a circle with center, through a point, and axis parallel to direction.

## Comments

## Tips[edit]

### Use circles to fix the distance between two objects[edit]

Circles are a great way to make the distance between two objects constant: If there are two points *A* and *B* on two lines *g* (point *A*) and *h* (point *B*) where *A* can be moved and *B* should have the constant distance *r* to *A* you can define *B* as the intersection between the line *h* and the circle around *A* with the radius *r*. As a circle intersects a line at two points (in case it's not tangetial or passing by) you have to hide & ignore the second intersection.
