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.
