Adobe Illustrator creates vector-based drawings that are saved in Adobe’s [AI] format by default. This format cannot be read in AutoCAD®, but you can export to DWG file format in Adobe Illustrator. In addition to using the Export to AutoCAD functionality in Adobe Illustrator, you can also export to a bitmap, such as JPG or TIFF (RGB Format, not CMYK), and then import the file into AutoCAD using the Image Manager. Note: For quality results, the resolution should be kept at or around 300 dpi of final printed output. Cutting the drawing from Adobe Illustrator and pasting it into an AutoCAD drawing is not a recommended option because unexpected results will occur and objects will be lost.
