Corel announced the newest edition to its technical graphics software line, CorelDRAW Technical Suite X6. Formerly known as Corel DESIGNER Technical Suite, new release includes precision tools integrated in Corel DESIGNER X6 and the most recent graphic design suite, CorelDRAW X6. Designed for technical illustrators and technical graphic users, the system adds more power, speed and new XVL technology for working with 3D models including importing, adjusting, modifying, and online or mobile publishing.
It allows illustrators and designers to work with data created by CAD engineers and take advantage of the new XVL Studio 3D Corel Edition to import, edit and adjust 3D models. Designers can use the system to import, adjust and modify 3D models, and send high-quality vector illustrations and renderings to Corel DESIGNER X6 and Corel PHOTO-PAINT X6 for further illustration authoring. The integrated XVL Player can insert 3D files in illustrations, and access model views and cross-sections for a high-resolution preview.
The solution includes tools for projected dimensions, dynamic callouts, threads and wells in projected drawing modes, and additional precise alignment aids. With the native 64-bit and multi-core support, the company says loading times will be faster and allow for more efficiency when manipulating large files and working on multiple projects.
CorelDRAW Technical Suite X6 users can upgrade to XVL Studio 3D CAD Corel Edition, which provides native support for a range of 3D CAD file formats (including CATIA, SolidWorks, PTC Creo, NX, Inventor, JT and others). The add-on also includes assembly evaluation, animation and additional 3D CAD tools to ensure efficiency and accuracy for technical documentation authoring connected to discrete manufacturing systems.
