PathToolkit is a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator, extending the application with a set of powerful tools useful both for technical drawing and illustration. Draw circles and arcs in different ways, round arbitrary corners, trim and extend paths, connect open ends, or join multiple disconnected paths into a single shape - many drawing functions usually available in CAD systems only, are now in Illustrator. Every time you deal with complex vector artwork, PathToolkit has something to offer to make your work done faster and simpler - just give it a try!

Excellent plug-in. It takes a bit of experimentation, but offers some very powerful path/node features.

PathToolkit brings a slightly random selection of 13 tools to the Illustrator armoury at a price which compares favourably to comparable selections such as Xtream Path.

Notable to me are the Fillet tool, which (unlike all the equivalents I have seen) will create controllable round corners between individual curved path segments, and the Transform tool, which makes it a little easier to adjust position, rotation and scale at any orientation without changing tools. The arc and circle drawing tools are also nicely implemented, with good visual feedback. The Trim tool is unique, in that it works on both open and closed paths, and the Extend tool too has some particular tricks up its sleeve.

Some of the tools are a little redundant, offering only subtle improvements over the native equivalents; there is nothing here that I would sell my grandmother for, but probably just enough to be worth buying. It doesn't have the scope of CADtools, but then it offers quite a lot for a seventh of the price

This app hasn't been updated in 2 years? Sounds worth a look.

Your grandmother is a lucky lady! :-)
