Chapter 7. Creating Elementary Objects > Using the ARC Command

Using the ARC Command

The ARC command is used to draw portions of circles known as arcs. Its several options make constructing an arc with a variety of known parameters such as center, start point, chord length, radius, and so on much easier than with traditional manual drafting methods.

In the following exercise, you will draw an arc by specifying three points on its circumference. After completing the arc, you will erase it and then draw two small arcs to round the corners of the fixture base. Use the coordinate display on the status bar and the Snap feature to identify points.
