I am fairly new to AautoCAD. I am mostly self-taught and am taking some schooling also. I am doing an exercise that requires me to draw a parabola (it is a Photo Floodlight Reflector). I have determined the focus and I know the directrix. I have also located 8 points on the parabola but I cannot figure out how to draw a smooth curve through all of these points. I am sure that there is an easy way to do this but I have not discovered it yet. Anybody care to give a beginner a hand? Thanks in advance for any help that you will give to me.
