3. Are various extensions available to be able to save my work and then import my work into the latest version of V-Carve Pro. I thought about purchasing Adobe Illustrator, but I am only able to use it in their cloud, and pay a monthly or yearly subscription price. I'm not keen on having to pay a constant fee to use Adobe they are only interested in making money. You have ot be careful or you could find yourself with a vector graphic that contains bit map info. Those will be very difficult tow work with if you have little experience with them. What is it that you're wanting to do with Corel Draw? I rarely use my suite of other vector packages these days as I can do everything I want directly in VCarve. I use CorelDraw x6 all the time. It is FAR more complex than Aspire/vCarve, and some of the things that I take for granted in Aspire/vCarve, are very hard to do in CorelDraw. If you are looking to use your images outside of vCarve, and want to add colour, etc, then CorelDraw is the way to go, in my opinion. 3.

I still do all my design work in Corel & export it to Aspire, partly because I do much more than dimensional work but mostly because I'm way more comfortable there. I've been using Corel since V4. However, I've heard enough people say that Aspire/V-Carve is easier & more intuitive to believe them. But, I'm incredibly stupid when it comes to learning new programs. I'm another one that doesn't use VCP to do any design work but that is because I have other software (not corel) which I am more familiar with & don't want to have to learn how to use another program. I am pretty sure that VCP would have been able to cope with any of the work I have done on the router if I had chose to use it. VCP would not be able to do some of the other work I do so not worth learning how to use that & use it all the time but then that isn't really a fair comparison as the other software is dedicated signmaking software. As for importing vector graphics from any online store it is worth noting that a lot of so called vector graphics contain a mixture of vector & bitmap elements. They should really be advertised that way but many are not. If you have had problems it could be that what you thought were vector images were not entirely. Even if you purchased another program such as x6 you would still have to do some work to convert those bitmap parts before importing into vcp. Since I am an antique, I learned corel starting with a very early version. Is one 'better' than the other? Depends what you are doing. Depends on how much time you are willing to invest learning how to use software. Corel has some very useful features for this type of work. One thing I like is the ability to put real dimensions on an object if I need them later for reference. Another is the node editing, it just seems more intuitive to me. What don't I like? Corel has no 'array' function, it can be done but it is clunky at best. Have I ever really used all that wonderful clipart? Not very much. I like the way corel previews fonts. It is also good for tracing over bitmaps. Love the distortion tools. This is sort of like the question: 'Should I use a solid modeler to create models?' Only if it makes sense, many models are created much faster in Aspire, but there are some best done in a solid modeler. 3.

As others mentioned VC can do all the above but also consider downloading InkScape as it can do everything Corel, Adobe and Xara can do for FREE: Source.
