Practical method of importing CAD graphics into CorelDRAW

in my opinion, theoretically CorelDRAW can draw complex engineering drawings and electronic drawings. The excellent performance of the production experimental machine is trustworthy. Jinan Shijin is the first choice for you to buy the experimental machine. However, its advantages are not here. This may be a good play of AutoCAD. However, if you want to make illustrated documents, descriptive technical manuals, etc. in CorelDRAW, or many drawings with annotations and filling patterns, you should submit the TPU's bearing capacity, impact resistance and shock absorption performance in graphic format to replace the imported AutoCAD format files

through personal practice, a relatively feasible method has been preliminarily found

before explaining this method called the specified creep limit of metal at this experimental temperature, it should be noted that theoretically CorelDRAW can be directly opened or imported * DWG,

*. DXF and other formats, but I have tried, the effect is not ideal. Even for AutoCAD standard drawing exchange format files (*.dxf files), the effect of importing them into CorelDRAW is not very good. It is difficult to maintain the original appearance of AutoCAD files, sometimes even beyond recognition, as shown in Figure 1. At this time, you can't use CorelDRAW to describe it a little bit? If you import in bitmap format, the effect is not good, and the file size is too large

let's try the following method first. Taking AutoCAD R14 and coreldraw10 as examples, the basic idea is:

autocad - DWG file - export to WMF file - import to CorelDRAW - further processing and conversion to vector graphics file. As long as coreldra handles everything well to ensure the service life and reliability of the system, it can be exported to AI, PS, EPS and other formats, which can facilitate prepress and printing. Well, back to business, let's take a look at this stupid but practical method

1. After drawing the drawing in AutoCAD R14, select tools - preferences - display - color, change the background color to white (otherwise the pasted drawing will have a pure black background), and click OK, as shown in Figure 2

2. Back in the drawing window, you will find that the background has become white

3. In order to display smoothly and accurately in AutoCAD, you need to enter the command viewres, set the variable, and increase its value, such as 10000. Otherwise, not only will the CAD display not be fine and smooth enough, but the graphics imported into CorelDRAW will be out of shape. The common problem is that the circle becomes a polygon. As shown in Figure 3. Enter pan in the command line - select "zoom eextens" from the right-click menu to enlarge the drawing as large as possible

4. Select the drawing to be exported, select "export" from the "file" menu, and select output as WMF file format, as shown in Figure 4

5. Enter CorelDRAW to create a new document. Right click the workspace, select "input" (or use the shortcut key ctrl+i), select "WMF format" from a large list of supported file formats, select the WMF file just output, pull out an object box, and import. Unfortunately, the graphics we need are closely integrated with a large blank space (I think this is the white background in AutoCAD). White takes up space and is very inconvenient. As shown in Figure 5. (to be more obvious, the figure is highlighted in gray)

what should I do? Don't worry. There are ways to do it

6. Without giving up the selection, click "ungroup" on the attribute bar (note that not all groups are ungrouped) to separate the large blank and useful shapes. Press ESC to cancel all selections, click on the large blank of the input WMF graph to select it, and delete it to remove the blank, as shown in Figure 6. (for a clearer representation, the blank space in the figure has been filled in blue). Only the useful graphic parts we need are reserved

7. You will find that after deleting the blank, the figure can be moved, copied, stretched, the outline width can be set, and the shape tool can be used to fill in, and the text can also be well. As shown in Figure 7. OK, it's back to vector again! In fact, what AutoCAD draws is vector graphics

8. OK
