how to create the center point of an arc/circle in Access?

Hi,

does anybody know a quick way to compute the center point of an arc/circle (from a DXF) in access?

 

I'm aware that you can set it out by selecting the arc and choosing stake method "center point of arc". Only drawback is that you can't show the deltas as Forward/Backwards like for a simple point, just grid deltas.

 

But is there a way to easily create it via the COGO functions and use it for additional COGO computations? In SCS900/Siteworks that is a no-brainer.

 

The only way I've found so far is to select the arc, review its properties, write down the center coordinate in a notepad, and manually key it in. That's a bit tedious.

 

If you've got a IFC solid you just have to select the circle face and it's straight away under right click/long tap, but with a DXF it seems to be awfully complicate.
