Good day

If you want to draw an arc without measuring, big compass or radius calculation…
I’m talking about big arcs, 3’ or more diameter.

That’s pretty cool. You use something similar to draw an ellipse.

Thanks for showing us how to make arcs, Niki. That looks like a very good method. I have often wondered how to make a large arc – now I have a good solution!

Nice tip. All of my large arcs, so far, have been the same radius as my trash can lid. ;)
