Pie chart with individual slice radius

       
 
 

Chart is a filled radar chart with multiple series.
 
Below is the chart data. In the range B2:B9 is the value of each slice within the pie.
The range C2:C9 is the percentage radius for each slice.
Values in J1:Q4 are derived from formula in order to calculate the angles and length of each slice.

Here are some of the formula

1 % Value =C2 =C3 =C4
2 % of 360° =B2/SUM($B$2:$B$9) =B3/SUM($B$2:$B$9) =B4/SUM($B$2:$B$9)
3 Start Angle =360*SUM($I$2:I2) =360*SUM($I$2:J2) =360*SUM($I$2:K2)
4 Finish Angle =360*SUM($J$2:J2) =360*SUM($J$2:K2) =360*SUM($J$2:L2)
5 Category Names =A2 =A3 =A4
6 Angles 0 =IF(AND($I6>=J$3,$I6<=J$4),J$1,0) =IF(AND($I6>=K$3,$I6<=K$4),K$1,0) =IF(AND($I6>=L$3,$I6<=L$4),L$1,0)

9 3 =IF(AND($I9>=J$3,$I9<=J$4),J$1,0) =IF(AND($I9>=K$3,$I9<=K$4),K$1,0) =IF(AND($I9>=L$3,$I9<=L$4),L$1,0)
 
Create a standard Filled Radar chart from the data in range I5:Q366 
   
 
Format the Value axis to remove lines and tick mark labels.
Set the Minimum value to 0 and the Maximum value to 1.
Use the Chart Options dialog to clear Major gridlines.
Finally select and clear the Category labels.
 
   

 
If you want to display the slices then you need to add another series and plot it on the secondary axis. Add the range A1:B9 to the chart
   
 
Select the new series and change the chart type to Pie
