summary Interactive curve fitting is one of the main problems met when trying to fulfill the task of converting the description of the shape of a car body model into a computer compatible form. The solution proposed by Bezier has gained wide attention and acceptance mainly because of the idea of relating the shape of the curve to a polygon that mimics the curve itself. It is noted that the degree to which the polygon mimics the associated curve decreases as the number of points of inflexion, sharp bends or other odd behaviors require higher order polygons. Some solutions proposed by other authors to overcome this problem are briefly discussed and a contribution to the problem is given
