Parallel Cad Arc

Recommended Posts

Is there an easy way to make cad arcs parallel? I've been drawing two circles with the arc I want and just tracing over them with the arc line tool, seems to me there should be a parallel offset or snap or something. What am I missing?

Alternate edit behavior, concentric. Set jump distance in preferences.  

Or transform replicate, copy move if along the axis. 

Or multiple copy

Yeah, concentric is what I was looking for. Multiple copy and transform replicate appear to produce the same radius as their original. I was using the move handle instead of the resize handle for the concentric edit behavior - which produces a similar result to the copy and replicate methods. Thanks again.

In the future you can use Multiple Copy as well.  You just need to use the correct handle again...
