In addition, you can easily transform these 3D views into vector illustrations by using the built-in “Send to Corel DESIGNER” feature.
Insert 3D models into technical illustrations
Insert a 3D model into a Corel DESIGNER document as an external reference, or embed the 3D model (XVL file) in the Corel DESIGNER document. The inserted 3D model is accessible as an editable and interactive 3D element inside the illustration that can be viewed in high-resolution preview and overlayed with other graphical elements.
3D PDF publishing
Publish to 3D PDF with interactive viewing of 3D content in combination with other visual and text elements. Export from Corel DESIGNER to 3D PDF to generate output with all pertinent data and graphics in one document for cross-media publishing. 3D PDF files can be viewed with free PDF reader applications that are installed on almost any desktop or laptop computer.
Translation Memory System (TMS) support
Reach a worldwide audience with a new option that allows you to send text content from your graphics file in Corel DESIGNER to Translation Memory Systems (TMS) using XLIFF standard, and receive translated content from TMS. The translation results can then be imported into the existing document to create a new file for the specific language. With illustrations instantly available in multiple languages, companies can satisfy their global business needs.
Automated 3D CAD to illustration update capability
Expand beyond the standard 3D file support and take advantage of the automated 3D CAD to illustration update, with the optional Lattice3D Studio CAD add-on. Streamline the technical illustration process by accessing early 3D designs as a source file. Once the designs are updated, you can use an automated process, Auto Detection and Update, to implement the design changes engineering has applied to the original 3D source file.
3D CAD repurposing capabilities
Lattice3D Studio CAD add-on also provides support for the native assembly and part file formats of high-end 3D CAD systems such as CATIA, SolidWorks, NX, Inventor, PTC Creo and many others. Plus, you can publish animated 3D visualizations as a 3D PDF or Lattice3D file format for instant sharing and publishing via online and mobile. Learn more

Match your desktop environment to the way you work best. CorelDRAW Technical Suite 2017 offers more UI customization options than ever before, allowing you to tailor your design space with a unique look. Enjoy flexible desktop color scheme options, alter the color of the area surrounding the drawing page, and even customize the color of your window borders. Another highly anticipated new feature is the ability to import X6 and X7 workspaces into Corel DESIGNER, CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT 2017 so you can continue working right where you left off.
Improve your technical communication capabilities with a large collection of powerful and dedicated illustration tools. First, explore the many possibilities with objects, such as the hide and display feature, or the ability to split vector objects, text and bitmaps. Next, Corel DESIGNER 2017 can simplify complex shapes with enhanced node selection, copy curve segments and provide a choice of node sizes and shapes. And finally, Corel DESIGNER 2017 and CorelDRAW 2017 allow you to create more realistic drop shadows with natural-looking feathered edges.
Precise illustration tools
Add greater levels of detail to your technical illustrations with projected shape tools, including Thread, Well, Cylinder and Prism tools. Quickly and easily draw thread and well shapes in projected space for the creation of bolts, nuts and more.
Precision layout and drawing tools
Capture your intended drawing shape with exactness using the Outline Position options that recognize line width measurements for object dimensions. Use the Alignment Guides so all elements of your technical illustration are intuitively placed in their intended positions with precision. Speed up the creation of all kinds of technical graphics with the Parallel Drawing mode in Corel DESIGNER 2017.
Streamlined callout creation

You can also link callout text to source shape metadata. Callouts based on object metadata are dynamic, helping you efficiently and consistently implement updates and changes.
Use the callout drawing tool in Corel DESIGNER to add interactive functionality to callout shapes in technical publications. With the Object Data Manager docker, you can list metadata fields, such as WebCGM metadata, for any graphical or callout shape. Object data items can be edited so that shapes can be manually edited as hotspots for WebCGM output.
Total control over fills and transparency
We've created our most powerful fill engine ever, giving you complete control over your fountain, bitmap pattern, vector pattern and hatch fills. Plus, the Fill dialog includes access to Content Exchange and fill libraries in Corel DESIGNER.
Drawing scale control
Create your illustrations and diagrams in accurate scale with the drawing scale control. View the active drawing scale, switch to another preset or set a custom scale at any time. In addition, Corel DESIGNER maintains the drawing scale when importing a vector illustration from a 3D model view so that imported views can be placed at a precise scale.
Ensure a consistent look, style, and layout throughout your design projects with Object Styles, Color Styles and Color Harmonies. With the enhanced Object Styles in Corel DESIGNER, you can manage object styles, such as outline color, line style, line width, halo, fill type and color, and text styles. You can then create symbol libraries that can be accessed and used across projects. Reuse the style definitions that you create once and apply to the individual components in the custom symbols.
Manage mathematical equations as editable elements within technical illustrations using the integrated Equation Editor. Mathematical and scientific formulas can be inserted and displayed in the drawing, and then modified when needed. Existing equations from older CorelDRAW documents can be opened or imported for use in Corel DESIGNER equations.
