CorelCAD 2015 software released

Corel has updated its CAD software, CorelCAD, with a new 2015 version. There’s a new Parametric drawing tool for the Windows version, which dimensional constraints to ensure 2D designs meet exact proportion, angle and size requirements by forcing a geometric shape to perform in a specified way. There are new 2D editing tools: ExplodeBlockX maintains the attribute values while exploding blocks to editable shapes; the DiscardDuplicates tool simplifies geometry; and the interactive trim path precisely trims curves and corners on screen.

There’s also a new Pop-Up Dimension Palette, that displays dimension text formatting and property settings on screen for quick editing and easier control of frequently-used settings. Corel has also enhanced the In-Place Text and Table Editing features so that text can be modified with the ability to quickly stack text and paste formatted text from Microsoft Word within a project. When it comes to tables, cells, rows and columns can be inserted, deleted and merged within existing tables to quickly include important text or instructions into any drawing.

It’s available now, priced at £579 (excl. VAT) with upgrades from older versions from £169. For additional CorelCAD resources including reviewer’s materials, images and videos, please visit

I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
