Oh the simple things.......

 

Hi

I'm my drawing sheet, I need to show an arc dimension. The arc is almost a full circle but with a small 1mm cut across 1 side as shown:

I get this very peculiar dimension that doesn't really represent anything. My points are at the bottom and yet, the dimension doesn't show the correct value nor are the points serving any purpose... I did the exact the same in Inventor with the exact same part (created in SW) and in 1 click, got exactly what I needed:

How can I get this result in Solidworks? My current method was to pick both points then select the curve.

 

Cheers
