The function you are looking for is called 'spline' in the AutoCAD world. First you can draw a 'polyline', which is a continuous line which can be made of several lines and circles. Then select this polyline and you will be given the option to convert it into a spline. You an adjust the curves of the spline, by moving the grip points that are displayed when you touch the spline.
