2D-CAD Tools + DXF Converter
for stress-free technical drafting in Adobe Illustrator.
Though Adobe Illustrator is a great drawing software used by many designers, its features for technical drawing are not enough for professional designers. Also, we wish it had better compatibility with DXF.
CAD-COMPO is a combination of plugins that adds measurement, labelling, exporting/importing DXF etc. features to Illustrator. Now you can complete whole design process just in Illustrator.

Although all our ideas start with pencil and paper, the marking and layout functions of CAD-COMPO4 have been a huge improvement that has allowed us to better express and label our furniture for clients in a digital world.
It allows me to be more efficient with creating Illustrator drawings, giving me more time to spend actually making furniture. From designing custom hardware for 3D Printing or sending digital PDF’s to clients, our job has been made so much easier.
