Envision with precision
CorelDRAW® Technical Suite X6 (formerly known as Corel DESIGNER® Technical Suite) combines the technical drawing tools of Corel DESIGNER with the graphic design power of CorelDRAW to give you a complete visual communication solution. Take advantage of all-new features to tackle a wide range of technical communication projects, from complex training manuals and intricate parts catalogs to detailed instruction sheets and more.
Repurpose technical design assets
With support for CAD drawings (AutoCAD DWG and DXF), legacy files and images, and more, CorelDRAW Technical Suite X6 ensures your information can be delivered or repurposed in all of the industry’s leading formats. Enjoy built-in 3D repurposing, plus the option to add on 3D CAD support and advanced 3D visualization.
Create precise technical illustrations
Produce standout technical drawings with dedicated diagramming tools and projected drawing capabilities. With essential callout and dimension tools, robust color styles and harmonies, and more, it’s easy to achieve a consistent and complementary visual style throughout any technical document.
Publish to technical communication standards
Create and deliver standardized technical documentation and confidently exchange files with clients thanks to enhanced support for more than 100 leading file formats, including WebCGM 2.x and S1000D, Microsoft Visio (VSD), Microsoft Publisher, SVG, DOCX, EPS, TIFF, PDF and more.
Increase speed and performance
Say goodbye to slowdowns when working with large files. Native 64-bit support gives you a dramatically faster performance, and enhanced multi-core processor support maximizes efficiency when working on multiple projects at once, importing and exporting files, or manipulating large documents.
New! Precise illustration tools
Add greater levels of detail to your technical illustrations with new 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. The new projected dimension tools also let you quickly and accurately measure objects and distances in projected space.
Enhanced! Faster formatting
The Object Properties docker now gives you object-dependent formatting options to help you refine your designs in less time. Also a huge time saver, new alignment guides let you position objects quickly and efficiently. The guides appear on the fly with suggested alignments to the existing elements on your page.
New! Drawing scale control
Create your illustrations and diagrams in accurate scale with new drawing scale control. View the active drawing scale, switch to another preset or set a custom scale at any time. In addition, Corel DESIGNER X6 now 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.
New! 64-bit support and Windows 8 compatibility
Enjoy dramatically minimized wait times with true native 64-bit Windows 7 and Windows 8 applications and enhanced multi-core processor support. The enhanced speed lets you quickly process large files and images. Plus, your system will be more responsive when running several applications simultaneously.
Enhanced! Streamlined callout creation
Track essential design details and key information with dynamic callout tools. The new sticky callouts will connect or”stick” to source objects as they are moved around or modified. 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.
Enhanced! Industry standards compliance and file compatibility
Create and deliver standardized technical documentation with support for leading formats, including WebCGM (with S1000D profile support) for Interactive Electronic Technical Manuals (IETM) and Illustrated Parts Catalogs (IPC) creation. Exchanging files is hassle free, thanks to support for more than 100 file formats, including SVG, CGM, PDF and Adobe CS6 (AI, PSD).
Enhanced! Easy access to design assets
Instantly find images on your local network and search online portals and websites. Easily access your content using built-in content assistant Corel CONNECT™. Organize assets by type or project in trays that are shared between Corel DESIGNER®, CorelDRAW®, Corel PHOTO-PAINT™ and Corel CONNECT™ for maximum efficiency.

Apply a consistent look throughout your projects with Object Styles, Color Styles and Color Harmonies. The new Object Styles docker centralizes style creation and management with everything you need in one place, including Outline, Fill, Hatches, Dimension, Callouts, Halos, Character, Text Frame and Color styles. Group your favorite styles together in Style Sets to format many objects at once.
New! 3D import and visualization tools
Add context to your technical projects by using 3D views and models in your illustrations. With the new integrated XVL Studio 3D, you can create high-quality renderings from 3D views imported from DWG, 3DS, VRML and XVL files, or use the unique new Insert 3D functionality to embed 3D models as editable 3D elements with a high-resolution preview.
