I'd like to draw and print a circle that's split in 10 slices (like a clock, but with 10 hours instead of 12 - 10 slices of 36 degrees each).

Can you recommend how to do this easily using (windows) software (preferably something that's not very esoteric)?

  • You could do it in excel with Pie Chart but I'm not really sure what is that you are after. – Vladimir Oselsky Jan 2 '14 at 20:34

    What have you already tried? – CharlieRB Jan 2 '14 at 20:44
  • Inkscape, but it was a bit overwhelming. – Cristian Diaconescu Jan 2 '14 at 21:18

Using Excel 2010

Enter in equal values in Column A. The number of rows entered will determine how many partitions your circle will have.

From the Insert tab, create a 2D pie chart with the cells selected (A1 through A10):

You will now have a circle cut into 10 slices, where you can then modify the color arrangements to meet your needs:

  • This didn't help broaden my horizons in handling vector image software :-P ... but did the job in an instant! – Cristian Diaconescu Jan 2 '14 at 21:19

Copy and Paste the data to an Excel Worksheet or write the data manually. Select all the data as shown. Select Insert->2-D Pie and the Pie will be shown. Choose the style that you like from Chart Design->Chart Style menu by selecting previously inserted 2-D Pie. Chart statistics data used to demonstrate this example is taken from: https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2019-12-20/the-worlds-most-generous-countries

You can also customize the degrees for each pie to your wish.

So you can have 10, 36 degrees pie slices also. Here's the picture:

  • +1 for the effort. I have no idea what I was trying to do 6 years ago with this circle :) – Cristian Diaconescu May 4 at 12:57
