With our simple Adobe Illustrator extension, you can connect and synchronize your design sketches on Illustrator with your Techpacker account. This way you can save time manually exporting and formatting files between the platforms. In one click you can upload or update a sketch from Illustrator, directly inside a tech pack card.
Even though this extension is FREE, you’ll need a subscription for both Adobe Illustrator and Techpacker. The minimum supported version of Adobe Illustrator is 2019 but we recommend upgrading to the latest version of illustrator before installing the Techpacker extension.
