Is it possible to dimension an arc in AutoCAD? I mean, like you can normally do with striaght line. I'd like to be able to pick an arc or pick the endpoints of the arc and have AutoCAD give me extension lines and dimension lines and of course the length of the arc (not the straight length or straight height of it). I'd like to have the dimension line follow the arc too. Right now I have to do a property check on the arc and then just right it into the drawing. Or, if it's a 3D object with a curved surface, I have to explode it until I get to the line arc that I want and then do a property check for the arc line. Thanks.

There is proven benefit for product development teams in using an integrated design and data management system.
However, not all product teams can afford, need or want all the various modules in an enterprise PLM system.
Rapid prototyping has become a game-changing innovation for designers, engineers and manufacturers. Previously, the process of creating wood or metal prototypes took weeks or months and the cost was often so prohibitive that designers skipped prototypes entirely and went directly from CAD to tooling.
