My own design flow would involve coding up the hinge and main cutting DXF in OpenSCAD, then pulling the resulting files into Q-Cad and/or InkScape for assembly and adding text. I haven't paid a Microsoft tax in ages so I'd then have to print-to-PDF to get it in a form I can use from the PC in the lab.
