Dimensions on exponential curve in drawing?

Good evening,

 

I am trying to figure out how to properly define the dimensions of an exponential curve in a drawing to make it easiest to have the piece machined.

 

I have googled my butt off but can't find any information about this at all.  I am starting to wonder if inventor refers to this type of curve as something else entirely, as well.  Whatever the case, any help would be appreciated.

 

Since an exponential curve is like the shape of an airplane wing and doesn't have a "consistent" angle, I'm thoroughly confused how to even begin going about this.

 

Thank you!

Bump.

 

If anyone can help, I am still thoroughly stumped on this.

 

Thank you in advance!

Post an example of what you are trying to do, like a dimensioned example view.  Or maybe post an example curve in autocad DWG format that someone could bring into an IDW.
