That (sort of) tool - and many similar - is part of !Apollonius that I used
recently to produce some mathematical figures by a strict formula. Apollonius
is quite distinctive in its mathematical way of working - but surely any CAD
program would offer *some* resources in this area. I'd also look at Rosemary
Miskin's !DrawLots and Joe Taylor's DrawBasic.
