Just figured out how to do this easily.

 

I drew two arcs, closed both ends converted it into a poly-line

 

<Plates...>

Custom Shape

Pick Internal point

 

and make the plate thickness = the height of your plate.

 

I drew in two arcs, closed both ends converted it into a poly-line

An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don't.
