Maybe we should call him botsy?

I think he wants a detailed step by step guide which explains how and where to draw each individual circle accompanied by commentary documenting how, where and why each circle was drawn. I'm sure eldon wouldn't mind spending a few hours putting something like that together, right?

Or, maybe basty should take the advice that has been mentioned several times and take some classes to learn about geometry, trigonometry and mechanical drafting.

I still don't understand. This is what I am be able to draw (see below pic). What to do next?

5. Autocad is a 64 bit program, in decimal terms it will show dimensions up to 8 decimal places but it is way more accurate than that, when you find and fix the error in your drawing then you can move onto the next stage. But the first thing to learn is how to draw accurately, using the basic tools provided in the program.

All the information you need is provided in the drawing. The fact that you're unable to figure out how to draw this is due to your obvious lack of training and understanding of what you're looking at. As I have mentioned numerous times, you need classroom training.

The center point for one of the R1.000 arcs is identified on the drawing. You even put the .400 dimension on your drawing but haven't drawn the circle. You are also given a maximum arc condition of 1.375. Knowing those two pieces of information, along with the .618 dimension, is all you need to draw the (3) R1.000 arcs. Once you have those drawn, all you have to do is use the TTR option of the Circle command to create the (2) R.500 arcs. Then Trim and Delete to clean up the drawing.

I created this in less than 5 minutes.

What is "maximum arc condition"?

I know the center of the R1.000 is 0.400 but I don't know where the point of this arc is start and end (see below pic). Can you tell me how?

8. This is what I done so far (see below pic). What to do next?

9. What do you do next? Go back and reread post #80, 88, 92, 96 and 106 as each one of them explain in words and/or images exactly what to do. There really is no sense in repeating information ad infinitum.

None of those posts you mentioned above can make me understand and draw the arcs. See below pic for the work I done. Can somebody just tell me what is the next step?
