    Not sure what file formats MasterCAD can read. But you could try exporting your Illustrator file into AutoCAD formats (.dwg and .dxf) and see if MasterCAD can read them. You could also try saving the AI file as SVG, as I'd expect MasterCAD to be able to read such a universal format, although you might lose some features due to the conversion.

    Try with Impactcad, it easily open .pdf, .ai etc… then export in CF2 (it gives you the possibility to update crease - cut data).
    You can find Impactcad in the forum (version 3 it's ok).
    Anyway, if anyone knows a plug-in for illustrator… still better.

    I found a plugin called Bezarc Kandu but it costs a lot to me ($459) just to convert to a CFF2 and for few times a year.
    Is there anyone that knows how to convert it in another way, better for free
