How to create an elliptical arc?

I'm trying to create a series of connected elliptical arcs.

 

SketchEllipticalArcs would seem a natural place to start. However unlike SketchCircles, SketchLines, etc. SketchEllipticalArcs provides only read-only properties; that is, there are no "add..." methods on SketchEllipticalArcs.

 

The only way I've found so far, is to create an Ellipse (with SketchEllipses.add) and then use SketchEllipse.trim/split to try to get the proper arc segment.

 

I think I could get this to work with some work, but it feels extremely kludgy.

 

Is there a more elegant solution?

 

Bill

Unfortunately, what you've found is currently the only way to do it.  This is the same as in the user-interface, although I hope to support it in the API in the future.

Hi, is this still the case, no way to create an elliptical arc other than creating an ellipse and trimming it with two lines?
