Designing of curves has been the main problem in computer graphics. In this regard, a number of schemes have been developed that posses C1 as well as C2 continuity in order to get smooth and peasant curves. Mohammad Sarfraz and Zyulifqar Habib [14] developed a C2 rational cubic spline with a family of shape parameters that are used to produce straight line segments and conics. For the smoothness of the curve two tangent schemes namely distance based derivative and second derivative continuity were discussed. Using interpolant introduced by Mohammad Sarfraz and Zulifqar Habib [14], a method has been developed to reconstruct the conic sections instead of a part of conic imposing distance based derivative continuity in different ways respectively. To implement the method, different examples of reconstruction of ellipses, hyperbolas and parabolas from the given data are also considered and compared with the original ellipses, parabolas and hyperbolas.
