How would you create a dashed circle in blender with an empty circle object?

I want something that looks sort of like this:

  • $\begingroup$ Create a mesh circle object, enter edit mode, select all in edge mode, use checker de-select from selection menu, delete only edges faces. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ what do you mean by "empty circle"? Ratt gives a solution, another one would be to use the Array modifier and the Curve modifier with a bezier circle as Object $\endgroup$

The answer is pretty simple and in the link which you provided. Add a circle object, go to the bottom left, click on the triangle thingy, and set fill type from nothing to N-Gon, or if you prefer nothing, I don't mind, that is your choice. Then rotate the circle 90 degrees. Then, add an array modifier and set the values to this:

enter image description here

You can change the count to how much you like depending on the number of dots you want. I just set it to 15.

Here's the rendered result:

Hope it helps.
