How to Pierce a Solid with a Hole at a Chosen Angle

I want to pierce a solid with a hole at 75 degrees. This will represent a dowel piercing a board. I can draw the dowel at the requisite angle but cannot figure out how to have its center axis pierce the board at the correct point.

I searched, but I couldn’t phrase an argument that returned a hit.


Make a cylinder out of the piece, then insert into position you want and use “intersect” tool.

I needed reminding of the Intersect command. I rarely use it and had forgotten it.

That’s a good idea Guido.
