I have two lines defined by two points each (P1, P2, P3, P4). I'd like to find the 2 points that are distanced r units from both lines. I found a way, but I think it's too long and maybe there's one shorter. { = r = r } (in the second image, replace P1 > P3 and P2 > P4) I'd like to have the solution not the system. Thanks.
