    An involute is the curve generated by unwinding a string from the shape.
    If you had a later version of AutoCAD this would be easier using Parametric dimensions and constraints.
    It would take a lot of measuring and/or calculating in 2000.

    In a program like Autodesk Inventor you could enter an equation curve and the software will generate the curve for you.
