Get the intersection of two pipes

Hello

 

I am trying to get the intersection of two pipes in order to insert a hole.

For that I have two options:

1. i get the centrelines of the pipes, get their intersection and offset with the radius of the largest to find the hole location

2. get the intersection between the small pipe centreline with the surface of the large pipe

 

I need to do this in j-link.

Can you advise on the best approach?

 

Thank you

 

Regards

Re: Get the intersection of two pipes

I don't have a direct answer, but keep in mind that the centerlines of the two pipes do not need to intersect. The small pipe can have an offset to the side, thus no intersection!

 

So I would go for option 2, get the intersection of the small pipe centerline and the surface of the large pipe.
