CAD-COMPO has been a great addition to Adobe Illustrator for Marrow Furniture.
Although all our ideas start with pencil and paper, the marking and layout functions of CAD-COMPO 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.
