circumference dimension

Is there a way, when in a drawing to dimension a pipe to show its circumference.


I know how to do it for an arc (end point, end point, arc line). But I cannot figure out how to do it for a full circle.


For example if I have a 500mm OD tube the circumference would be PI x D = 3.142 x 500 = 1571mm.


How can I show this 1571 as a dimension, or how do I set a note up to show this figure.
