Abstract

Conics or, equivalently, rational quadratics are a standard tool in the aircraft industry or in the design of fonts. In this paper the construction of curvature continuous, planar curves (open or closed) that consist of conic segments, represented in the rational Bezier form, is discussed, and an iterative procedure to compute their offset curves is outlined.
