CValley To Release CAD Plugins for Illustrator

Filters designed for 2D CAD applications By Dave Nagel
CValley will release two plugins for Adobe Illustrator next week, each focusing on CAD tools. The plugins, BluePrintTools-Pro and EXDXF-Pro, will be available for Macintosh and Windows and will sell for less than $100. According to CValley, the plugins are designed for a wide range of users, from those who have never used CAD software to CAD professionals. A free demo will also be available.

BPT-Pro is designed for creating simple blueprints, designing with dimension lines and measuring over a curved line. BPT-Pro includes 13 tools, accessed through the Illustrator toolbox. BPT-Pro is priced at $89.95.

EXDXF-Pro converts Bezier curves from Illustrator to a smooth line with minimal anchor points. EXDXF-Pro can convert files from the DXF format to the Illustrator format, and it can also export Illustrator's Bezier curves to DXF. It will sell for $89.95.

A combination of the two filters will also be available for $139.95. It requires Mac OS 8 or higher and Illustrator 7 or higher. For more information, visit
