Submitted by Akash Periyasamy, on February 03, 2022

Arc command is used to produce a smooth curve between two or more points in the design workspace. The arc is nothing but a sector of the circle that is used to produce a curve. In AutoCAD, by default, the arc is drawn in the anti-clockwise direction, and to draw one in the clockwise direction, press the CTRL key on the keyboard.

Arc Command (Step 1)

Types of Arc in AutoCAD 2022

The various types of arcs that are available for the user are listed below:

  • 3 Point
  • Start, Center, End
  • Start, Center, Angle
  • Start, Center, Angle
  • Start, End, Angle
  • Start, End, Direction
  • Start, End, Radius
  • Center, Start, End
  • Center, Start, Angle
  • Center, Start, Length
  • Continue
Arc Command (Step 2)

Now, let us understand each type with the aid of a suitable example.

1) 3 Point Arc

  • First, draw two lines of required dimension.
    Arc Command (Step 3)
  • Select the 3 Point Arc command from the ribbon panel.
    Arc Command (Step 4)
  • Indicate the First point, Second point and Third point of the arc.
    Arc Command (Step 5)
  • Now, the required arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 6)

2) Start, Center, End

  • Draw a line using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 7)
  • Click on the Start, Center, End Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 8)
  • Specify the starting point, midpoint and endpoint of the line.
    Arc Command (Step 9)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 10)

3) Start, Center, Angle

  • Draw two perpendicular lines of length 500mm using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 11)
  • Click on the Start, Center, Angle Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 12)
  • Specify the starting point, midpoint and angle as 90 degree.
    Arc Command (Step 13)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 14)

4) Start, Center, Length

This command is similar to the start, center, end command.

  • Draw a line of 1000mm length using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 15)
  • Click on the Start, Center, Length Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 16)
  • Specify the starting point, midpoint and length of the line.
    Arc Command (Step 17)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 18)

5) Start, End, Angle

  • Draw a line of 1000mm length using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 19)
  • Click on the Start, End, Angle Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 19-a)
  • Specify the starting point, endpoint and angle of the arc as 35 degree.
    Arc Command (Step 20)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 21)

6) Start, End, Direction

  • Draw a line of 1000mm length using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 22)
  • Click on the Start, End, Direction Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 23)
  • Specify the starting point, endpoint and by moving the mouse, we can alter the angle of the arc along the required direction. We can fix the direction where the angle is around 35 degree.
    Arc Command (Step 24)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 25)

7) Start, End, Radius

  • Draw a line of 1000mm length using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 26)
  • Click on the Start, End, Radius Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 27)
  • Specify the starting point, endpoint provide the radius value of the arc required. For our example, let us provide 600mm radius value.
    Arc Command (Step 28)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 29)

8) Center, Start, End

  • Draw a line of 1000mm using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 30)
  • Click on the Center, Start, End Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 31)
  • Specify the midpoint, starting point and endpoint of the line.
    Arc Command (Step 32)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 33)

9) Center, Start, Angle

  • Draw two perpendicular lines of length 1000mm using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 34)
  • Click on the Center, Start, Angle Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 35)
  • Specify the midpoint, starting point and angle as 90 degree.
    Arc Command (Step 36)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 37)

10) Center, Start, Length

  • Draw a line of 1000mm length using line command.
    Arc Command (Step 38)
  • Click on the Center, Start, Length Arc Command.
    Arc Command (Step 39)
  • Specify the midpoint, starting point and length of the line.
    Arc Command (Step 40)
  • Now, the arc will be created.
    Arc Command (Step 41)

11) Continue

This command is used to continue the process of drawing an arc from the last point in the design workspace. It provides a continuous option to draw an arc without much interruption to select the arc command.
