I found this book and its cover is:



Can AutoCAD 2000 really able to create a car body like above?
AFAIK, ACAD2000 can only be able to create 3D solid modeling.
Even there is no helix command in the ACAD2000.

How do you create a custom curve (e.g. parametric curve) like Solidworks in ACAD?

If that car body was indeed created using AutoCAD 2000 then it had to be done by someone with very in-depth knowledge of the program.  I doubt that even a good cad tech could easily recreate it.  My guess is that the curves might have been created using surfaces extruded from splines.  Only a guess.

Well, the Shawna LOCKHART's AutoCAD 2000 book is only worth 6.58 $ so let's take a look...
I can also see that this particular car is the cover of all the various Shawna LOCKHART AutoCAD releases...
If anybody around the world has bought one, please let us know about it.

Maybe the only command available on AutoCAD 2000 for these 3D surfaces would be EDGESURF ( with the settings SURFTAB1 and SURFTAB2 ) and/or RULESURF but it will result in 3D surfaces with facets.
What would you do with HELIX ?

Dery, as you have AutoCAD 2014 you could eventually take a look at :
AutoCAD 3D tutorials by Kristen S. KURLAND ( AutoCAD 2013 )
Chapter 11 - Complex surfaces pages 110 to 128
See page 116 SURFNETWORK
Have you already done some 3D works simple or complex ?

Is this tutorial you mentioned above available for download or a book that need to be bought?

If I can download it, can you show me the link?

This is the first page, I will try to see if it's still available on the internet, or please give me an email adress because it's a PDF.
