Arc

pCon.planner_DrawingElements_Arc_1

Within the Drawing Elements category under the Start tab, you can find three different 2D Arc elements. The options differ in the way the Arc is drawn. Depending on requirements, you can set an Arc using two endpoints, three points or using a center point, radius and angle.

The three options are presented below:

 

Arc using 2 points

pCon.planner_DrawingElements_Arc_2

1.Select the option Arc from the Drawing Elements group.
2.Left click to set the starting point for the Arc.
3.Click again to set the end point of the Arc.
4.By moving the mouse, you have the ability to specify the direction and curvature of the Arc in relation to its center. The radius can be defined using the mouse movement or can be entered with your keyboard.

Arc using 3 points

2.Left click to set the starting point for the Arc.

4.Left click a third time to set the endpoint for the Arc.

Arc using a center point

pCon.planner_DrawingElements_Arc_4

1.Select the option Arc: Center Point from the Drawing Elements group.
2.Left click to set the center point of the Arc.
3.Drag the mouse to draw the radius of the Arc or enter a specific value using your keyboard.
4.Lastly, set the angle to determine the Arc span. This can be done using the keyboard or by dragging the Arc with the cursor and clicking to complete the form.
