The generation of these shapes is, again, fully automated, but the difference from the polygons is you would rarely want to build these manually, and they do not explode into individual segments. It's worth noting that in this section, there are options for every possible variation, but they're probably only a few that will make sense to you. I'm going to start off by opening several toolbars here, so I'm going to use the commands for a bit. So again, we click on the icon and then next click on the title bar there and drag, so it just stay open. And open up the Circle, click, drag and move and the Ellipse. Zoom in here.

Start off the basic Arc, which is just from your Center. Define a start point. I'm just going to eyeball this here. I am going to hold down the Shift key to constrain it to 90 degrees, and then rota...
