Can anyone recommend software that will create mechanical die lines for cardstock or havey paper packaging?
Someone told me theres a program, that all I need to do is entered some dimensions and it will create a flat die line blank with fold lines etc... This then could be imported or save as an Adobe Illustrator file.
I searched the web, but maybe putting in the wrong terms, since nothing really showd up except for "Draw Die Line" which really doesn't do what I'm looking for.
Any help is appreciated.

Is this the sort of thing you're looking for? - http://www.packmeister.com/default.asp
(I searched: cardboard packaging layout software.)

Yes, thats its however there doesn;t appear to be a way to export the layout out of this program. But this is on the right track.

I think you could print the output to PDF & open it in Illustrator (I just checked it & you can indeed.)

I will try, I also found another software that looks maybe more robust, waiting for someone to call mehttp://www.esko.com/Web/site.aspx?p=2576
