DRAWING ARCS The Arc Absolute or AA , and the Arc Relative or AR command use the following method for drawing arcs. Your current pen location becomes one end of the arc; you specify the center point with one parameter (setting the radius), and set another parameter to specify the number of degrees through which you want the arc drawn.

AA4600,2500,-180; Using the Arc Absolute command, specifies the pivot point of the arc, thereby setting the radius; draws the arc for 180 degrees, in a negative angle of rotation, (clock-wise).
