CADPAK-128 is a program for the Commodore 128 which helps you draw pictures and graphics designs easily and accurately. The drawings have a resolution of 640 points wide by 360 points high.  When completed, the pictures are printed using a dot matrix printer in various sizes, depending on the printer.  The drawings may be saved on disk, both as a protection against loss due to power failure and also for later recall and display.

Unlike other drawing systems, CADPAK allows you to get an exactly scaled printer output on your dot matrix printer. It also allows you to operate in the units of your drawing problem (feet, miles, etc.) and all dimensions you see during the drawing process are those external dimensions. The scale factor is set up when the screen is initialized. The printer distortion is compensated for so that circles are printed as true circles.
