Speed, Simplify Technical Illustration Workflow

CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 offers new capabilities to speed and simplify the technical communications workflow.

Featuring a new customizable UI, CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 enables users to tailor their environment to the way they work best.

"Technical illustrators can work and share with confidence due to industry-leading support for popular 3-D CAD formats and technical publication standards," said a company spokesperson.

CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 is the latest version of Corel's comprehensive software suite designed to meet the needs of technical illustrators. Based on a graphics suite built specifically for Windows, CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 offers a collection of unique tools specifically designed for the technical communicator's workflow. "With industry-leading support for popular 3-D CAD formats and technical standards, improved projected drawing tools, enhancements to translation workflow support and more, CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 is ideal for technical-oriented industries including manufacturing, aerospace, engineering and architecture," said the spokesperson.

"With CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017, technical communicators receive an updated collection of applications to streamline virtually every aspect of their work," said Klaus Vossen, Senior Product Manager at Corel. "Get the dependable power CorelDRAW and Corel DESIGNER are known for, plus seamless compatibility with your CAD files, support for technical standards and comprehensive drawing and illustration tools. This new suite gives businesses the features they need to tackle any project, on time and on budget."

CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 offers a collection of new capabilities to speed and simplify the technical communications workflow:

  • Enhanced isometric drawing tools: Create isometric or other parallel projected technical illustrations for assembly and maintenance instructions by dynamically drawing on a projected plane. Obtain greater precision and exactness with UI controls.
  • Enhanced boundary tools: Now it is easy to extend curves to create closed shapes from imported drawings - ideal for correcting errors originating from legacy CAD files that are missing the required accuracy.
  • Enhanced 3-D import and visualization tools: Add context to technical projects by using 3-D views and models in technical illustrations. With the integrated Lattice3D Studio Corel Edition 2017, create high-quality renderings from 3-D views imported from DWG, 3DS and now IGES. Then easily transform these 3-D views into vector illustrations using the built-in Send to Corel DESIGNER or the new Send to CorelDRAW feature.
  • Enhanced Translation Memory System (TMS) support: Enhanced XLIFF export and import make it easier and more cost-effective to create technical graphics with descriptive text in multiple languages.
  • New customizable user interface: Enjoy flexible desktop color scheme options, alter the color of the area surrounding the drawing page and even customize the color of window borders. Plus, import legacy workspaces from Corel DESIGNER (X6 and X7), as well as CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT (X6, X7 and X8).
  • New and enhanced file format and compatibility: Work and share with confidence using enhanced support for technical publication standards and formats, including WebCGM, S1000D, ATA iSpec 2200, SVG and PDF, Adobe CS/CC and more.

CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 also includes new graphic design capabilities and support for the latest hardware and devices, based on the power of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 2017:

  • New and enhanced design tools: Improve technical graphics with a large collection of dedicated illustration tools. Explore the many possibilities with objects, such as the hide and display feature, or the ability to split vector objects, text and bitmaps. Take advantage of enhanced node selection, copy curve segments and a choice of node sizes and shapes.
  • New high-DPI display and multi-monitor support: Author technical communication projects on high-definition monitors, including Ultra HD 5K.
  • New pen support and touch workspace: Improves user's drawing capabilities with new device and tool options, including support for advanced stylus and touch-enabled devices like Microsoft Surface and Wacom tablets, as well as the Microsoft Surface dial. Take advantage of a new tablet mode to sketch and annotate on the fly and make quick adjustments using touch or a stylus.
  • Enhanced professional image-editing power: Ensure the photos included in any documentation have the professional look desired. Use the advanced Straighten Image to correct perspective distortions with a few simple clicks. Discreetly remove unwanted spots and imperfections from any image with the Healing Clone tool. Eliminate unwanted areas with Smart Carver and obscure parts of images with Gaussian Blur.
  • New LiveSketch tool: Transform the creativity of free form sketching into precise vector curves. Using the power of artificial intelligence, LiveSketch adjusts and combines hand-drawn strokes to existing vector curves, allowing the user to sketch and design on the fly. Offering an experience with the natural feel of pen and paper, LiveSketch eliminates the time-consuming task of sketching on paper, scanning and tracing to vector.
  • New Corel font manager: Explore, handle and organize fonts to satisfy all typeface needs. Browse and search for fonts, preview font glyph sets, create font collections and more.

CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 includes:

  • Corel DESIGNER 2017 - Precision illustration and technical design
  • CorelDRAW 2017 - Vector illustration and page layout
  • Corel PHOTO-PAINT 2017 - Professional image editing
  • Corel PowerTRACE 2017 - Bitmap-to-vector tracing
  • Corel Font Manager 2017 - Powerful font management
  • Lattice3D Studio Corel Edition - 3-D visualization and authoring
  • Corel CONNECT - Content finder
  • Corel CAPTURE 2017 - Screen capture
  • PhotoZoom Pro 4 - Plug-in to export and enlarge digital images from PHOTO-PAINT.

Expand 3-D capabilities with an optional Lattice3D Studio CAD Corel Edition add-on, giving users access to advanced authoring tools to leverage 3-D CAD data. Create a wide range of technical documentation and marketing collateral from manufacturing designs. Updated Lattice3D Studio CAD supports native assembly and part file formats for high-end 3-D CAD systems such as CATIA, SolidWorks, NX, Inventor, PTC Creo and more. Publish animated 3-D visualizations as a 3-D PDF or Lattice3D file format for instant sharing and publishing via online and mobile.

Accounts can take advantage of volume licensing options and maintenance, which offers benefits including network deployment and virtualization.

CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 is available now in English, French, German and Japanese.
