Arc Dimensioning in inches


New member
I have problem while dimensioning a arc from a whole circle (Example: I want to dimension a 60 degree area of a whole circle) and I want the measurements in inches. Is there a way to dimension so that this is shown in inches instead of degrees.
Any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi Bendek,
You have to set your dim format to inches, then you have to use Arc Length in Dim pulldown.
Hope this helps
