I have used inkscape for CAD on occasion. It generally has the features needed for light CAD work, but I usually move to another tool for more serious work. For example there are some things that are tricky to precisely position without resorting to the XML editor.

Although this particular feature is not something I'd use, I'd be in favour of more CAD like features.

I know lots of people who use inkscape to create designs for laser cutting.

Hello all,
        We get requests for this CAD-like functionality a LOT, in forums.  (For
some reason, it seems like a lot of users think of Inkscape as a CAD program.)
I'd be curious what developers thoughts about this are.  I mean adding this type
of feature to all of Inkscape, not just rectangles.

All best,

based on input values

Dear Ibrahim Duz,

Are you looking for a contractor to help you make your extension? I
don't think it would be very expensive, given the requirements.

I'm a contractor, and I've worked on a lot of python extensions. Email
me privately if this is what you need.

Best Regards, Martin Owens
