Elliptical Arc


Toolbox Icon:


Draws an elliptical arc, or part of an ellipse or oval, between two points.

Point 1: Center of the ellipse

Point 2: Beginning of the arc

Point 3: End of the arc

There are two choices for the format of the arc


If you select Draw as a Line, the arc will be drawn as line segments that follow the shape of an arc. Otherwise the arc will be stored as an actual arc.

An elliptical arc is drawn from the second point, counterclockwise around the ellipse to the third point.


N Segments: When saved as a plane or line, this is the number of segments, into which the object will be divided.
