Creates an ellipse by specifying its aspect ratio - the ratio of the major axis to the minor axis. The axes of the ellipse are orthogonal.

  1. Enter the aspect ratio in the a:b ratio field on the Inspector Bar. (Lock this value if you want to repeat it later, otherwise the field reverts back to the default.)
  2. Select the centerpoint of the ellipse.
  3. Move the mouse to size the ellipse.

imga:b = 0.5 imga:b = 2.0

Tip: The fixed ratio for an "IsoCircle" (an isometric circle on a cube) is 1.73 (the square root of 3).
