# Creating Curves From the End Of an Object

The Curve From End Of Object command creates a tangent curve off the end of an existing line or curve.

The curve is drawn from the end of the object that is closest to the object selection point.

To create a curve from the end of an object

1. Click Home tabDraw panelCurves drop-downCreate Curve From End Of Object.At the Command prompt, enter CurveFromEndOfObject.
2. Select the line or arc nearest the end to which the new tangent arc is to be attached.
3. Specify one of the following types of entries to use:
• Point: Enter P and then specify the end of the chord. The curve is then drawn.
• Radius: Enter R and then do one of the following:
• Enter the radius at the prompt.
• Enter A and enter a degree of curve.
• Enter C and enter a degree of chord.
Note

When drawing a curve, specifying a positive radius or degree of curve draws the curve clockwise or to the right of the starting angle, whereas a negative radius or degree of curve draws the type curve counterclockwise or to the left.

After you enter the radius or degree of curve, the following prompt is displayed:

```Select entry [Tangent/Chord/Delta/Length/External/Mid-ordinate] <Length>:
```
4. Do one of the following:
• Enter Tangent, or T, and then enter the tangent length, or pick the distance in the drawing.
• Enter Chord, or C , and then enter the chord length, or pick the distance in the drawing.
• Enter Delta, or D, and then enter the delta angle, or pick the distance in the drawing.
• Enter Length, or L, and then enter the curve length, or pick the distance in the drawing.
• Enter External, or E, and then enter the external distance, or pick the distance in the drawing.
• Enter Mid-ordinate, or M, and then enter the mid-ordinate distance, or pick the distance in the drawing.
