"I mean if you know your co ordinate system may be then you can draw a few
shapes but I think one has to be an expert in geometries to use svg draw to
draw a shape other than one which is provided."

Correction: The svg draw program can be used to draw any shape that you can
describe by connecting lines to the vertices of the shape in a Cartesian
coordinate system. It can also be used to draw paths and Bezier curves. As
a result, there very few, if any, shapes, graphs, or curves that cannot be
drawn and converted to tactile form using the svg draw program along with
an appropriate embossing tool. One school that I am aware of uses the svg
draw program along with microcapsule paper and a heater to produce physics
diagrams for math and physics students.

And the svg draw program is free.
