Program Description

This program enables the user to construct an arc with arrowheads at each end point or at both end points, with the arrowheads aligned with the arc.

Upon issuing the command syntax aarc (Arrow Arc) at the AutoCAD command-line, the user may construct an arc with the same options available as the standard in-built AutoCAD ARC command.

If the constructed arc is long enough to accommodate one or two arrowheads, the program will proceed to generate a 2D Polyline (LWPolyline) arc segment with additional segments of varying width at the start and/or end point forming the arrowheads.

The dimensions of the resulting arrowheads and the option to determine whether the arrowheads are created at the start of the arc, end of the arc, or at both the start & end, may be altered using the aarcsettings command; these parameters will be remembered between drawing sessions.

This program will also perform successfully under all UCS & View configurations.
