How to draw clothoid in AutoCAD?

A - answer You can draw a clothoide (Euler spiral, Cornu spiral, Track transition curve) - a smooth transition between an arc and a straight segment using the LISP utility KLOT, see www.cadstudio.cz/download. Load it with APPLOAD, start the KLOT command and pick the endpoints of an arc and line. The application will draw the clothoid-transition.
