I love them dearly, but David and Phil are making you work too hard.  Who wants to layout a billion trimmed circles to then make a billion arc segments?   You’re having a hard day, your *$%# boss is making you figure out arc radii so that the *$%# contractor can actually build your *$%# boss’s *$%# elliptical wall.  *$%#^ that.  Use this tool instead.
