Please support for CAD functions
Pleased support CAD functions natively in illustrator like CADtools or CAD-COMPO, I consider that these functions are very important.

Teh expensive Hotdoor cadtools plugin has existed for over a decade. illustrator being a design tool & especially with the use of laser cutters now having teh ability to cretae simple 2d cAD would bee idela for illustrator. the simple scaled sizing of objects & distances & dimensions from each other as definable. Just the basic ability to offset a line by a specified amount from another would improve illustrator. adding the quick ability to fillet where 2 lines meet.

Agreed this has been a huge feature set that has been missing from Illustrator for years. I work for an architectural firm and while I don't need the complexity of a full CAD package for most the work I do, having drawings (elevations, plans and sections) which I can easily set scales and do rough area calculations is extremely handy. I previously worked for a signage company and used Corel Draw. I currently use the CadTools plugin.
