Afternoon all im wanting to mark 360 degrees on the outer edge of a blank plate, ive been looking to see if i can find one to print out but all i can find are timing degree wheels, protractors but not one that can go around the circumference. dont suppose anyone has one in their files do they?

You might try Blocklayer.com, they have many templates, one of which might do what you want.
For instance: https://www.blocklayer.com/timing-tape.aspx
Click the Menu button for a list of everything they can do.

Shouldn't be hard to draw. Just draw a line and pattern it around a point however many times to get the number of degrees that you want between each line. If you just want the marks on a ring then just draw a couple of circles and trim to them.
If you want numbers, then you would need to add them manually.

You can create a circle with the degree marks with Inkscape using this video on how to do, You will need to put the numbers in as she does near the end. You do need to have 2 circles and combine them as one path. Then duplicate them to be able to make 2 line lengths in the finish item. I did the lower one following her instructions.

Did this for a 50 watt laser on plastic.

Maybe you can change it

If using DesignEdge making the marks is simple. Draw circle the diameter you want. Draw a line the length you want at 0 degrees. Use polar array with 359 copies and snap to center of circle.
