Advanced 3D content conversion and reuse with XVL Studio Corel Edition
Technical illustrators who use 3D designs from existing sources will benefit from a number of updates to XVL Studio Corel Edition These include the ability to quickly find similar parts with the same properties, highlight parts by selecting them, specify the color for profile lines separately, and fill areas of cross sections. Among other things, you can also benefit from additional improvements in the annotations.
With this powerful new web application you can present concepts to your customers on a 2in1 or mobile device or work on your projects on the road.
- You can also create new illustrations and access your DESIGNER and CorelDRAW files when you're not at your computer.
- Store your work in the cloud so you can access it anytime, on any system.
- Benefit from the support of import and export of the file formats CDR, DES, PDF, PNG, JPEG and SVG.

Tools for precise designs and illustrations
Get specialized illustration tools that ensure accuracy and precision when creating axonometric drawings, detailed annotations and comprehensive dimensioning. Increase the level of detail in your technical illustrations with projected shape tools - such as thread, hole, cylinder, and prism tools.
Tools for axonometric drawings
Isometric or other parallel projected illustrations for assembly and maintenance instructions can be created on projected surfaces. Project existing plane objects onto the desired surface instead of calculating everything manually.
Advanced dimensioning tools
Advanced dimensioning tools eliminate the need to draw and project dimensions in multiple steps. Display accurate readings in building plans, etc. Add additional context with advanced projected arrows in dimensions and note lines.
Precise layout and drawing tools
The outline positioning options, which detect the line width for object sizes, can be used to accurately capture the intended character shape. Use dynamic guides to intuitively place all elements in technical illustrations, and use Parallel Drawing mode to work faster.
Easy creation of labels
Capture essential details and key information using dynamic labeling tools. Fixed labels remain connected to the source objects when they are moved or edited. Object metadata-based labels exhibit dynamic behavior to make it easier to apply updates and changes.
Drawing scale control
Use the drawing scale controls to create true-to-scale illustrations and diagrams. Display the current drawing scale, switch to another preset or set a custom scale. Corel DESIGNER maintains the drawing scale when importing a vector illustration from a 3D model view. This allows imported views to be placed to scale.
OPTIONAL: Functions for further use of 3D CAD data
The optional XVL Studio 3D CAD add-on also provides animation tools and allows you to work with 3D CAD design files. XVL Studio 3D CAD Corel Edition supports native 3D CAD file formats, ensuring support for assemblies and parts from 3D CAD systems.
OPTIONAL: Automatic illustration update using the 3D CAD source data and 3D publishing
The enhanced add-on XVL Studio 3D CAD allows you to update illustrations based on 3D CAD sources using the 'Auto-Detect and Update' tool when changes are made to the underlying design data. You can also publish your document as a 3D PDF or XVL file format for sharing on the web or mobile devices.
Use the labeling tool in Corel DESIGNER to add interactive features to the labeling forms in technical publications. The Object Data Manager docking window allows you to list metadata fields for graphical or label form. Edit object data elements so that speech bubbles for WebCGM output can be manually edited as hotspots.
Use object styles, color styles and color harmonies to unify the look, style and layout of your design projects. Take advantage of the new option to add style groups to objects if a matching style group is available.
With the integrated formula editor, mathematical formulas can be managed as editable elements. You can use it to insert mathematical and scientific formulas into drawings, display them and change them if necessary. Existing formulas from older CorelDRAW documents can be opened or imported for later use in Corel DESIGNER formulas
Interactively straighten and adjust photos.
Rotate skewed images by aligning an alignment line with an element in the photo or by specifying a rotation angle. Adjust the perspective of buildings, landmarks, or objects in your photos with the interactive Perspective Correction tool.
Adding a perspective effect
Quickly create the illusion of distance and depth by assigning perspective to bitmaps and vector objects directly in the drawing window. A practical tool for presenting technical illustrations and graphics in practical scenarios.
Applying Hides to Bitmaps
Deform bitmaps interactively. Place the bitmaps in a shell and move the nodes of the shell. Quickly and seamlessly incorporate bitmaps into illustrations using envelope presets or custom envelopes.
Save time with the tool LiveSketch™
Draw and design without delay! LiveSketch is a state-of-the-art drawing tool based on the latest developments in artificial intelligence and machine learning. Freehand sketches and drawings are immediately converted into precise vector curves
GPU-accelerated vector previews
Complex vector shapes can be repositioned and edited without straining system resources. The use of the graphics processing unit (GPU) can help speed up the display and editing of graphics in Corel DESIGNER, CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT on certain computers.
Symmetry drawing mode
Create various symmetrical designs in real time: from simple objects to complex effects. Thanks to the automation of this otherwise complex process, you can work significantly faster.
Compatibility with the latest file formats
You can publish, share, and output technical documents that meet technical publication standards, including the latest .DWG CAD file import and over 100 other data file formats. Use cross-media publishing and distribution capabilities - including CGM, WebCGM (including S1000D 4.2), SVG and PDF - to deliver files in a readable format.
Publication of 3D PDF files
Publication as a 3D PDF file allows 3D content to be displayed interactively together with other visual and text elements. Corel DESIGNER allows you to export files as 3D PDFs to create documents that contain text, graphics and embedded 3D elements for cross-media publishing. 3D PDF files can be viewed with free PDF readers.
Advanced automation functions
Create macros and add-on modules with Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Applications (VSTA) and Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Developers can use the advanced automation interface to create utilities and macros that interact with the drawing page and extend the product applications.
Integration with SharePoint CMS
Customers with a CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2019 Enterprise License will enjoy additional benefits for collaboration and file sharing through the enhanced connectivity of Corel DESIGNER and CorelDRAW with Microsoft SharePoint sites. You will be able to access your company's document management system (DMS) directly from these applications.
Translation Management System (TMS) workflow
Create illustrations that contain descriptive text, output the text directly to a translation management system (TMS), and then process the translations in Corel DESIGNER to create global technical publications.
