If you're laying out a large radius arc in a confined area and can't reach the center of the circle, enter arc dimensions below to find lay-out points in the curve. Also see Printable Arc Templates to create printable paper templates for smaller arcs.

To lay out a large radius arc in a confined area, enter either the maximum height of the arc (above centre of chord), or the radius of the arc, and the increments along the chord line for your lay out points.

The smaller the increments, the more accurate (and smooth) the arc line will be.

Mark the base 'chord' line and increments from centre outwards, and measure 90 ° to the arc points to form the arc.

To make sure the measured points are square off the base line, mark another line parallel to the base line (above or below), square a line through the center, mark corresponding increments and line through both increment marks to mark the arc points.
