EXDXF-Pro converts Bézier curves from Illustrator to a smooth line with minimal anchor points, while maintaining the curve’s precision. EXDXF-Pro has the capability of converting files from the standard CAD format DXF to Illustrator (AI) format. It exports Illustrator's Bézier curves to DXF and also imports files accurately. It offers industry-standard formats, including the R12 and R13 standards, which can be imported into most CAD programs. It is available for $89.95.
CAD-COMPO is the name for BPT-Pro and EXDXF-Pro combined. They are conveniently bundled so that the users can benefit from both programs.
