Create Technical Illustrations with More Speed, Power and New Precision Tools

Maidenhead, UK – Tuesday 19 March 2013 – Corel today announced the newest edition of the company's technical graphics software, CorelDRAW® Technical Suite X6. Formerly known as Corel DESIGNER® Technical Suite, the latest release of the complete visual communication suite includes new precision tools integrated in Corel DESIGNER X6 and the most recent graphic design suite, CorelDRAW® X6. Designed for technical illustrators and technical graphic users, CorelDRAW® Technical Suite X6 adds more power, speed and new XVL technology for working with 3D models including importing, adjusting, modifying and online or mobile publishing.

Access and Repurpose Technical Design Assets

CorelDRAW Technical Suite X6 includes key tools and intuitive features for businesses and technical communicators that rely on technical illustrations and diagrams to quickly and effectively communicate the company’s products and services. Corel DESIGNER X6 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. CorelDRAW Technical Suite users also benefit from industry-leading file format compatibility, which ensures smooth collaboration with colleagues, clients and partners.

Complete Visual Communication Solution

“We understand the importance of having access to the best tools that will allow technical graphics and illustration professionals to create high quality illustrations. Specialised design tools such as projected dimensions, dynamic callouts and Lattice’s XVL technology will enhance the visual communication workflow for both quality and consistency,” said Klaus Vossen, Product Manager for CorelDRAW Technical Suite at Corel. “Now with native 64-bit and multi-core support, CorelDRAW Technical Suite continues to be one of the most cost-effective and complete visual communication solutions available today.”

“By integrating our XVL technology with CorelDRAW Technical Suite X6, we’re providing specific tools that will enhance the creation of 2D and 3D technical documentation,” said Bill Barnes, General Manager, Lattice Technology, Inc. “We’re pleased to be working with Corel to develop a complete visual communication authoring solution for technical communication professionals.”
