Is there a way to stretch a circle while keeping the circumference? I want to be able to modify a circle to show the "squish" factor of a gasket.

Hi Brian, did you give a try to the ellipse?

Brian,

Completely new, but thought I would add an opinion. From the side a gasket will look like an long rectangle. If you want to squish it. More realistic option, draw a rectangle and fillet the corners to make a long pill shape. Thinking that may better represent a compressed gasket. Could also draw a rectangle, add circles to the ends and trim the extra. (feels like more work)
