Ellipse
Sketch an ellipse by placing a center point and two axes radii (one major and one minor).
Sketch an ellipse by placing a center point and two axes radii (one major and one minor).
In the Sketch toolbar:
The Ellipse sketch tool allows you to sketch an ellipse by placing a center point and two axes radii (one major and one minor).
Click the Ellipse tool on the sketch toolbar. Click to place the center point of the ellipse. Drag outward and click to place the primary axis radius. This sets the axis diameter equidistant from the center point. Drag and click to set the secondary axis radius. This sets the axis diameter equidistant from the center point and perpendicular to the primary axis.
Optionally, immediately after the ellipse is created, input a numerical value for the primary axis diameter and press enter, then input a numerical value for the secondary axis diameter and press enter. This dimensions the ellipse without having to use the dimension tool.
Steps
 Click the Ellipse tool .
 Click to place the center point of the ellipse.

Drag outward and click to place the primary axis radius. This sets the axis diameter equidistant from the center point.
 Drag and click to set the secondary axis radius. This sets the axis diameter equidistant from the center point and perpendicular to the primary axis.
 Optionally, immediately after the ellipse is created, input a numerical value (or type "=#" to input a variable) for the primary axis diameter and press enter, then input a numerical value (or type "=#" to input a variable) for the secondary axis diameter and press enter. This dimensions the ellipse without having to use the dimension tool.
To input a variable in any dimension field after the geometry is already sketched, the equal sign (=) is not required. Type "#" to input a variable.
Either axis can be major or minor, depending which axis is sketched larger (major) and which axis is sketched smaller (minor).

Steps
 Tap to place the center point of the ellipse.
 Drag outward and tap again or touch and drag then release, to place the primary axis radius. This sets the axis diameter equidistant from the center point.
 Drag and tap again or touch and drag then release, to place the secondary axis radius. This sets the axis diameter equidistant from the center point and perpendicular to the primary axis.
Either axis can be major or minor, depending which axis is sketched larger (major) and which axis is sketched smaller (minor).
