Q - question

How to dimension arc length?

A - answer AutoCAD can dimension only arc angle, not length. You can use a short LISP utility - DIMARC, which works the same as angular dimension but displays length of the arc. DIMARC can be downloaded from www.cadstudio.cz/download.

For an associative dimension you can use the LiveLabel utility.

Since AutoCAD 2006 you can use the internal DIMARC dimensioning command.
