A MUCH EASIER way! There is a website (Hubs Spokes Spindles) that does all the calculations for you (You input the number of spokes the diameter etc.) and generates a printable template.

End of Edit

In the discussion Brian's (Bushmaster) post on INDEXING DISC JIG, EASY PROCEDURE
the question came up on how to make printable indexing diagrams in SketchUp.

I use the following procedure.
Note: this tutorial assumes that you know the basics of using SketchUp.
If you still need to find your way around SketchUp, do a search in YouTube for Sketchup for woodworkers 2017

In this example I used 40 degrees to make a 9 segment index wheel.
