Arc Tool / 2 points

Is there a way to draw and arc from a center point? Example : Set center point draw line (say 2m) and create an arc (say 60 degrees)? Apologies if this is this simple or obvious.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Open, thank you for reaching out!

If I understand correctly, you want to draw an arc with a distance of 2mm from the center point with a 60 degrees, right?

Select the “Precision” tool (top-bar), and then draw an arc (drag your finger/stylus in a circular direction), then tap on each parameter to change its value. Attached video to explain it better:

Does that answer your question?


Thank you for your thoughtful reply. The difference is I can determine the center on both distance and direction. Enclosed is a reference of how I do this in SketchUp.

Sorry about the delay!

I understand now. Well, the experience is different here, as it’s a trade-off between touch/natural sketching to a drawing experience with a mouse. Eventually, you’re able to achieve the same result, just have to do it in a different way.
