3) Draw another circle. Place its center on the origin, then click outside of the first circle you drew to make it larger than the first.

4) Select the "Smart Dimension" tool from the main toolbar. Click on the outer circle and enter the outer circumference of the pipe into the box, and click the green check mark.

5) Click on the inner circle. Enter the inner circumference of the pipe into the box, and click the green check mark.
