  1. Aliasing type problem...

    Thanks for the help guys. Converting to outline (AI CS) made two extremely thin strokes (yet they were outlines), but they had a black fill! Wierd indeed, but I have failed to mention that the origional stroke was 0.014mm thick. Mabye i'm just asking too much.
  2. Aliasing type problem...

    Hi there... Got a bit of a problem with a EPS print that i'm absolutely bamboozled with... The artwork is 100% vectored. It is ripped by "Poster Print" to a 2.2m Mutoh Rockhopper IIk. Please pay attention to the clean lines in the pink, and the rough bitmappy looking lines in the blue. I...
  3. NEWBIE... just bought Corel Draw 12

    Sign tools does nothing you can't already do in corel itself... You're pretty much paying for the use of predefined actions. Waste. I've learnt corel and it took a good year.. i now use it to design signs, however things get cut from 'omega' (dedicated sign cutting program) through the import...
  4. I Hate It! I Hate Ai!!!

    no program will convert a picture to a vinylable image automatically, and look half decent. For that you'll need to recreate or "digitize" the raster image. Adobe illustrator is more than capable of doing this, but if you can't handle illustrator try corel draw. it's nowhere near the cost of...
  5. Shadows

    theres always the old trick of thatching. Probly only good on large scale stuff. Create two long rectangles and put them on opposite 45 degree angles. copy them time and time again over each other moving the two rectangles further apart each time. Finish off with an outside contour of the object...

    exactly, chances are the curves on the shape of your text are either to sharp, or the nodes are too numerous

  9. Select by Color

    Chris. There is none. Mabye you should learn to use the object manager and group similar colors? This may effect layer heirachy, but it's a possible way around it
  10. Exporting/importing

    I've never used .WMF file formats, but i've had the horizontally compressed problem from casmate to corel while exporting via .eps. Anyone have an idea?
  11. I'm having some problems with corel draw graphics suite 12

    I've crashed corel 12 a couple of times, but not on simple graphics. I'd put it down to your laptop. Try it on a desktop?
  12. Corel for main software? / Corel Sign Tools 3

    corel is a great vector based program, but don't waste your money on sign tools. Sign tools does nothing corel can't do, so if you think you're lacking in skills, keep your money and do some tutorials.
  13. Cutting thin guage aluminum

    you won't only need a special bit, but you'll need an oil lubricant which doesn't only cool and greases the alluminium as it cuts, but applies it with pressure. If you are using a multicam, you can use the actual router to drill into the base. Now these bits are actually hollow, and if you use...
  14. DPI Question

    I recreate all my artwork by hand via the Bezier tool... There must be an easier way... Corel Trace really sucks. I'll try this streamline thing!
