What can the Artwork Optimizer Standard Edition do?
The Artwork Optimizer Standard Edition performs sequence / stacking order optimization in CorelDRAW. What
this means is it rearranges the objects in a drawing so they can be processed in the optimum order for cutting on a
vinyl cutter, laser or CNC cutting system. The optimization of the cutting order speeds up cutting and in the case
of the vinyl cutter also improves accuracy. Here is a sample drawing before optimization howing what can
happen while a CorelDRAW drawing was being created. The objects become scattered in the stacking order due
to cut-and-paste and other operations. The red lines and arrows show the sequence in which the drawing will be
And here is the same drawing after being optimized.
The difference is pretty dramatic and was very easy to do. A drawing this small would also be easily rearranged / optimized by just dragging the objects around in the object manager. BUT what about 200 objects? 2000? 6000? The Artwork Optimizer has processed drawings as large as 12000 objects and the 6000 object drawing that it was developed with can be rearranged in just about 10 seconds.
New Features of Artwork Optimizer Standard Edition
- Inside Before Outside Benefits
The Artwork Optimizer can now sequence inside before outside. What this means is that if a shape is inside another shape (is an Island) then the Optimizer can sequence the inside shape before the container. This is essential in CNC cutting so the outside shape does not become loose and cause the inside shape to be cut incorrectly. Laser cutters can also benefit from this process.
- Drawing Converted to Curves and Ready to Cut
The Artwork Optimizer produces an optimized drawing that has all the text and combined shapes broken apart and converted to curves. This is a new drawing that is fully cut ready. The original drawing is not modified.
Our newest Artwork Optimizer Standard Edition release 1.3 has the following fixes and changes:
Support for inside-before-outside sequencing has been added for shapes that have islands inside their main outlines.
It has a new licensing system and installer that bundles all the files needed for all supported versions of CorelDRAW into a single installer.
The new licensing system requires the use of ID and License files. Cut-and-paste is no longer supported.
This version allows multiple users with different user accounts on the same computer.
Fixed a bug in the licensing system that prevented using maximum length computer names.
A dongle option to allow use on multiple computers (one at a time) is available for an extra charge
Added support for Home and Student X6 installations
Added support for Technical Suite X6 installations
