Illustrator is vector graphics software that can be used to design and manipulate images to be sent to a laser cutter. It can also be used to create sketches that can be imported into 3d design software.
As part of a larger suite of graphic design programs, Illustrator and CorelDraw are professional-grade programs often used for designing web graphics.
Adobe Illustrator is proprietary software, although Tulane currently maintains a site-license for Tulane-owned computers only as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud. This license is not available for private computers or student computers. For more information about eligibility, see the download link below.
