# Position objects around other object forming a circle

I have an object at some position. I need to spawn other objects and place them at random positions around this object, forming a circle with center on the first object and at some x distance(radius) from it. How can i calculate the transform position that i need to place the objects ?

Thank You

You can use the function below - it returns a Vector3 position with the center and radius specified:

```function RandomCircle(center:Vector3, radius:float): Vector3 {
// create random angle between 0 to 360 degrees
var ang = Random.value * 360;
var pos: Vector3;
pos.z = center.z;
return pos;
}

// How to use:

var center = transform.position;
for (i = 0; i < numObjects; i++){
var pos = RandomCircle(center, 10);
// make the object face the center
var rot = Quaternion.FromToRotation(Vector3.forward, center-pos);
Instantiate(prefab, pos, rot);
}
```

you can watch this plugin: Circle Objects Manager | GUI Tools | Unity Asset Store, I think itâ€™s what you want
