CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2019 Offers Precision for Technical Illustration
New software offers enhanced isometric drawing, greater document control, improved Styles workflow and performance-accelerated productivity.
June 11, 2019
CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2019 is the latest edition of Corel’s comprehensive graphics suite designed to maximize technical illustration and drafting workflows, the company reports. Produce precise illustrations, including assembly instructions and complex schematics from original designs or existing 3D CAD renderings. A streamlined interface and boosted performance accelerate technical communication authoring, while new tools make design creation more precise with enhancements to callouts, dimensioning, axonometric drawing, and more, the company notes.
“Knowing that productivity is paramount, CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2019 is focused on accelerating your entire technical illustration workflow,” says Klaus Vossen, senior product manager, CorelDRAW. “From opening 2D and 3D source files, photos, and documents, to publishing technical communications of virtually any kind, this complete suite enables you to work faster with precision and control.”
Enhanced Isometric Drawing Tools
Produce complex illustrations efficiently with pinpoint accuracy. Draw on projected planes and redefine drawing planes easily with enhanced projected drawing tools. Add context with enhanced projected arrows in dimensions and leader lines.
Precision and Control in Your Documents
Understand every project element at a glance. The new Objects docker provides more control over the management of objects, layers and pages. When creating user interface dashboards and icons, or working with odd pixel-sized drawings, improved pixel workflow tools ensure images have crisp edges when exporting for the web or other digital output.
Enhanced Styles Workflow
Ensure a consistent visual style across technical publications in less time with new Styles workflow enhancements. Take advantage of the ability to apply existing Style Sets as well as new preloaded Style Sets that follow S1000D technical illustration standards.
Enhanced UI, Performance Updates and New CorelDRAW.app
The interface is easier to navigate with the new Find and Replace docker, and new shortcuts for commonly used tools. The updated Technical Illustration Workspace groups common features and the Project tab of the Transform docker is more intuitive. Sign into the new CorelDRAW.app through your browser to access your .CDR and .DES files from virtually any device and create new vector designs and illustrations on the go.
