Features

  • Isometric drawing tools

    Create isometric or other parallel projected technical illustrations for assembly and maintenance instructions by dynamically drawing on a projected plane. Project your existing planar objects to a desired plane instead of manually calculating the skew angle and rotation. Obtain more precision and exactness with the UI controls in Corel DESIGNER®, as users can draw and edit shapes using accurate measurements in isometric and other projected drawing modes.

  • Advanced dimension tools

    Eliminate the need to draw and project dimension objects in multiple steps thanks to the advanced dimension tools. Display precise measurement values in building plans and more, including radial and diameter dimensioning. Plus, with projected dimension options, your projected drawings can be quickly documented with precise and dynamic dimension lines and text.

  • 3D import and visualization tools

    Add context to your technical projects by using 3D views and models in your technical illustrations. With the integrated Lattice3D Studio Corel Edition, you can create high-quality renderings from 3D views that are imported from DWG and 3DS, plus IGES which is new in CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017. In addition, you can easily transform these 3D views into vector illustrations by using the built-in “Send to Corel DESIGNER” feature.
