We can make a circle in some way, either by using the standard method for determining the center and radius. AutoCAD provides three other ways to draw a circle.

Draw a Circle Tangent to Other Objects

Tangent point is the point at which an object without touching other objects that intersect it. To create a circle that intersect with other objects, select the object and then specify the radius of the circle.

To create a circle tangent at three points

To make the circle tangent at three points, set to run the object is locked (OSNAP) for Tangent and three-point method to create a circle.
