`PCENT`

Keypoint defining the center of the circle (in the plane of the circle). If

= P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI).`PCENT`

`RAD`

Radius of the circle. If

is blank and`RAD`

= P, the radius is the distance from`PCENT`

to`PCENT`

.`PZERO`

`PAXIS`

Keypoint defining axis of circle (along with

). If`PCENT`

= P and`PCENT`

is omitted, the axis is normal to the working plane.`PAXIS`

`PZERO`

Keypoint defining the plane normal to circle (along with

and`PCENT`

) and the zero degree location. Need not be in the plane of the circle. This value is not required if`PAXIS`

is defined along the Y axis (that is, a circle in the XZ plane).`PAXIS`

`ARC`

Arc length (in degrees). Positive follows right-hand rule about

-`PCENT`

vector. Defaults to 360°.`PAXIS`

`NSEG`

Number of lines around circumference (defaults to minimum required for 90°-maximum arcs, i.e., 4 for 360°). Number of keypoints generated is

for 360° or`NSEG`

+ 1 for less than 360°.`NSEG`

Generates circular arc lines (and their corresponding keypoints). Keypoints
are generated at regular angular locations (based on a maximum spacing of
90°). Arc lines are generated connecting the keypoints. Keypoint and
line numbers are automatically assigned, beginning with the lowest available
values [**NUMSTR**]. Adjacent lines use a common keypoint.
Line shapes are generated as arcs, regardless of the active coordinate system.
Line shapes are invariant with coordinate system after they are generated.
