Draws circles by
This command draws circles by two points, three points, and by tangent, tangent, and radius; it also converts arcs to circles.
Accessing the Command
command bar: circle
alias: c
menu bar: Draw  Circle
toolbar: Draw 
ribbon: Draw  Draw  Circles
: circle
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select center of circle or [2Point/3Point/TTR/Arc/Multiple]: (Pick a point, or enter an option)
Set Radius or [Diameter] <x.xx>: (Pick a point, enter a distance, or type D to define the diameter)
The complete list of circle drawing methods is summarized by the Draw  Circle menu:
In the icons, the larger green dot indicates the starting point, the smaller green dots the additional pick points. When an icon has all small dots, then the pick order does not matter.

The z coordinate is rarely entered, so most often you enter x,y coordinates. 
Diameter 
After you pick the center point, this prompt asks you to specifies the diameter of the circle: Diameter of circle  enter a distance, coordinates, or pick a point 
Set Radius 
After you pick the center point, this prompt asks you to specify the radius of the circle: Radius of circle  enter a distance, coordinates, or pick a point 
2Point 
Defines the circle by two points that you pick on its circumference; prompts you:
The abbreviation for this option is 2P. 
3Point 
Defines the circle by three points that you pick on its circumference; prompts you:
The abbreviation for this option is 3P. 
RadTanTan 
Defines the circle by two points that are tangent to other entities, along with the radius. A tangent is where a circle touches another entity. The Tangent entity snap is activated automatically during the first two prompts:
The abbreviation for this option is RTT. 
Arc 
Converts arcs to circles by closing them; prompts you: Select arc to convert to circle  Choose an arc 
Multiple 
Repeats the command until you press Esc.

Circles can be edited directly through grips:

Select the circle. Notice that it has five grips.

Drag the grips to perform the following actions:
 Drag the quadrant grips to stretch the circle (increase and decrease the radius).
 Drag the center point grip to move the circle.
