Hi All
I have two circles, one is .25” in diameter and the other is .5” in diameter. Their centers are on the X axis.
How do I connect a line from one circle to another with the connections being the tangents?
Lastly, When I tried going from Vertex to Tangent, after zooming in I noticed the tangent end of the line was not actually connected to the circle. This gave me “gap” erros when trying to pull out the drawing as a solid.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Adjust to superfine firstly. Usually, I find that the "intersect" is usually more accurate ( gapless) on some curve scenarios. U se different views and eyepoints to get the best view needed for connections.
