Adobe Illustrator is a popular vector design software. With the included template you have a way to easily start new Illustrator projects optimized for Shaper Origin. The template will always open as a new file, so no need to worry about saving a new copy of it.
Note - This template will only work if you have Adobe Illustrator installed. You can download a free trial at http://www.adobe.com/products/illustrator/free-trial-download.html
How to use the template
1. download and open the template file Shaper_Template.ait ( found attached at the bottom of the page )
2. Adobe Illustrator will open with a new file.
3. In the corner of the artboard you will see a guide for creating objects for Shaper. These 5 boxes show the different treatments you can give your design. The colors assigned to your design will affect the type of cut you will make once it is transfered into Origin. Use the eyedropper tool to assign colors and cut styles to your design. Save your files as .SVG when you are finished designing.
