To create an arc, you can specify various combinations of values for the center, end point, start point, radius, angle, chord length, and direction.

An arc is a purely graphic object. To make an electrical connection between the nodes of the schematic, use the object Wire. To make an electrical connection between the PCB pads, use the object Track. |

# Commands for the arc object

Command | Description |
---|---|

Graphics » Arc » Start, End |
Draw an arc using a start point and an end point. The horizontal and vertical distance between the two points determines the size of the axes of the ellipse. |

Graphics » Arc » Start, End, Radius |
Draw an arc using a start point, end point, and third point to set the radius length. |

Graphics » Arc » Start, Center, End Angle |
Draw an arc using an initial point, a center, and a third point to specify an angle that uses the center of the arc as the vertex. The distance between the starting point and the center determines the radius. |

Graphics » Arc » Start, Diameter, End Angle |
Draw an arc using an initial point, a second point for the diameter, and a third point to specify an angle that uses the center of the arc as the vertex. The distance between the starting point and the second point determines the center and radius. |

Graphics » Arc » Start, Point, End |
Draw an arc by specifying three points. |

Graphics » Arc » Start, X-axis, Y-axis, End Angle |
Draw an arc using an initial point, a second and a third point to specify the size of the ellipse axes, and a fourth point to specify an angle that uses the center of the arc as the vertex. |

Graphics » Arc » Center, Radius, Start Angle, End Angle |
Draw an arc using a first point to specify the center of the arc, a second point for the radius, and a third and fourth points to specify the start and end angle of the arc. |

Graphics » Arc » Center, X-axis, Y-axis, Start Angle, End Angle |
Draw an arc using a first point to specify the center of the arc, a second and third points to specify the size of the ellipse axes, and a third and fourth points to specify the start and end angle of the arc. |
