# Circle – Alphacam #3

# Circle in Alphacam

The next basic geometry that we will often use is the circle. You can draw a circle in Alphacam in several different ways, which is already visible when choosing a command. The **Geometry |Circle** command is expanded and there are seven ways to draw circles. However, although there are many ways to draw circles, the first method **Geometry | Circle | Center + Diameter** is most often used.

In the command line, the **Circle Diameter** command appeared, i.e. in the first step we have to specify the diameter of the circle.

Enter **10** and click **OK**.

The next command is the **Circle Center**, which means we have to specify the XY coordinates of the center of the circle.

Enter **X 0 Y 0**.

As with previous geometries, the command is still active and we can draw next geometries or we can cancel them by clicking on the **RMB**.

In this way, we drew a circle with a diameter of 10 at the point **X 0 Y 0**, i.e. in the center of the coordinate system.
