Correction to Summary: Creating an Arc Perimeter Dimension

Hi All,

My previous summary indicated that to create this in Sketcher you selected:
end of arc, other end of arc, select arc and MMB to place
However, this simply creates an included angle dimension..Apparently this is a common mistake 🙂

The correct method (which some of you dd reply to me with after I created the summary) is as follows:

Create your basic sketch with a radius and angle dimension.
Select the arc. Click Edit > Convert to > Perimeter.
You will be prompted to select a dimension to be driven by the perimeter dimension.
Select the angle dimension.
A new dimension will be created as seen below.
