Hi,

I recently go a used BN-20 and was told that I could use Corel Draw x8 home and student to add the cut lines and then use Roland versaworks to do the printing. But when I go to add the Roland cut lines in Corel Draw they are not there and some research and some say you can’t do it with the home and student version while others says (including the seller) I have to download the pallet and add but no one seems to be able to provide a link.

Can someone clarify this for me and help me do it and if I can’t use this method is there another program I can use that does not cost so much?

Thanks!

Home or student version does not have VBA or VSTA or Macro Editor. Most of the plugins requires at least one of those utility. I know my Graphtec CorelDraw plugin requires VBA.

Join CorelDRAW Community forum may be you will find answer there. I found this in the forums.

There are YouTube videos related to Versaworks. Here is one Setup CutContour Corel Draw for Print & Cut

If you cannot use the plugin, your other options are exporting as a raster and using the image outline function in CutStudio but it isn't always 100% accurate. You could also try exporting as .AI or .EPS and importing into CutStudio, that would probably be your best option.

Versaworks will recognize a spot color when named CutContour as a cutline.

In Draw, make a new spot color and name it CutContour. Give the object you want cut a hairline outline and assign the outline the new spot color. Export it. Import into Versaworks.

At least that was how it worked when I used versaworks, but it was a few years ago.

As a side note, you asked about other programs. Inkscape is a fine free vector creation program. Problem is it can't create, let alone export spot colors. You could still use it to create the art and the cutlines, then use another free program called Scribus to assign it a sport color named CutContour. Perhaps a bit convoluted, but possible. Affinity Designer is another alternative, but it isn't free. It is low cost. I have read it can deal with spot colors, but haven't actually tried.

Imagine a situation: a candidate found a suitable vacancy, wrote a great resume and cover letter for it, and sent them to the employer. After a couple of days, he receives a long-awaited answer. However, the unexpected happens: instead of inviting for an interview, the future boss gives the candidate the task - to write an essay. I have such a situation, and I am not good at writing essays. Guys, please advise the free essay writing service. Thanks in advance.

Similar problem here. Partly found a solution suggested by these programming assignment experts. The solution is to swap the Corel Draw for Adobe Illustrator. The latter seems to be more promising when it comes to vectors and printing.

I hope you didn't PAY these 'programming assignment experts' for a cop-out answer like that!
