Hello everyone, so Im new to the world of Solidworks and VBA, though I have created numerous VB applications for another cad/cam software, so I do have some experience but Im not an expert by far. So to my question. I am trying to draw a circle using this method and I am confused as to the part of the line CreateCircle(XC, YC, Zc, Xp, Yp, Zp)

I know the XC,YC,ZC is the center of the circle, but what is Xp,Yp,Zp, I try and Macro record a .250 circle lets say and when look at the syntax I see Set skSegment = Part.SketchManager.CreateCircle(0#, 0#, 0#, 0.003036, 0.000928, 0#) I know its in meters but Im having trouble understanding where the .003036 and .000928 is coming from.  I see the help file tells me that its the value of the point on the circle in meters, but Im still lost. Thanks in advance...
