Corel DRAW 11 Presentation on Computer Architecture Prepared by: Ezequiel MendonÃ§a Rao April / 2003 Tutorial Corel Draw 11 This tutorial will teach you how to make a presentation of architectural design using Corel Draw 11. Several resources will be used in the process. The example shown is a flat, a total of four on the floor of the building. In the end you wi ll have an architectural plan humanized, ready to be printed. 1 Initial Setup of the design: When started Corel Draw 11, it presents you with a Welcome screen, allowing thei r choice to start a new chart, or other options. Choose New Chart. After startin g the Corel Draw 11, it will present the screen below, asking you to set up a de sign for the beginning of their work. You also can start their work by a design prototype (model option menu above) was first set. Initially configure the paper size you use (A3 in our example), then set the pap er position (landscape format), then configure the units of measure (centimeters ). 2 Then configure the units of its scale and grid work. For this two quick clicks o n the ruler and will appear Options dialog box shown below. Or on the ruler using the right mouse button a menu and choose Configure floatin g grid. After these procedures, even within the same framework of the Options di alog, set the scale of his design for 1:50 (note: make sure you really set up th eir units in cm - must be within range of design: 1.0 cm = 50.0 cm). Set the sca le, choose now a value to its grid work. A value commonly used in grid architect ure will be 5 by 5 cm when working with drawings of humanized indoor plants. You can specify the grid by values of frequency or spacing, as follows: Frequency: In Corel Draw 9, 10 and 11, for calculating the frequency of the grid with a val ue of 5 on 5 will always be independent of the level of 0.2 configured. It is ca lculated with the formula: 1 / value grid â 1 / 5 = 0.2). In Corel Draw 8.0, to ca lculate the value of the frequency grid with a value of 5 in 5 and a scale of 1: 50: divide 1 by the value of the grid multiplied by the desired range, eg 1 / (5 x scale) â 1 / (5x50) = 0.004 3 Spacing: In Corel Draw 9, l0 and 11, to calculate the value of grid spacing with a value of 5 on 5 on a scale of 1:50, divide the figure by the square of the gr id scale, example: 5 / 5 escala2 â / 502 = 5 / 2500 = 0002 In Corel Draw 8.0, to calculate the value of grid spacing with a value of 5 on 5 on a scale of 1:50: divide the value of the grid and the desired range, eg 5 / scale â 5 / 50 = 0.1

(seems to be a bug in the program). You may click the Curve Auto Close to notch the curves and place fill (Patience: it has to be turn-by-turn!). 6 Another solution to the problem is set in Tools select Fill curves open: Options Document General and I warn that this option may not be very good because when you need an open curve without padding, you must select the curve and click on the No Fill color palet te: In the Properties Bar, the site with information on size of objects, it displays a wrong measure for the selected object (in our example: 1396.0 x1047, 0). To c orrect this measure, first close the padlock non-proportional scaling. After that the correct value for the actual size of the rectangle drawn in AutoC AD (in our case: 2000x1500). Then, since you can delete the rectangle assist. He did not care to be grouped with other objects, because this can happen, and if you delete it, also delete another object of the drawing that is part of this gr ouping. To see if an object is clustered, deselect all objects and select only t he rectangle, and notice the status bar of Corel Draw 11. There you can see some thing like. In this case it is indicating that this object is selected a group o f two objects that are in layer WALL Corel Draw 11. In the same Properties Bar, click on the button all Ungroup to separate these ob jects again Remove the selection of objects and select only the rectangle auxili ary Note that Corel Draw 11 recognized the rectangle selected as a curve (any AutoCA D is a polygon curve for Corel Draw 11). This indicates that actually only the r ectangle is selected. Now you can delete them. 5 Organizing layer (Layers) Under the Object Manager (Tools menu Object Manager), you can control the layers (and objects) that were imported from AutoCAD. Now you must arrange the layers in Corel Draw 11. Arrange the layers in order of visibility. Remember that the l ayer is lower down will be hidden by what is above. A good way to organize them is to put the text layer first, and more at the end of WALLS, and finally a laye r of floor below the wall layer, and of course, all layers below the layer GRADE . To change the order of the layers, simply drag them by one name over another.Â Finally rename Layer 1 for furniture and place them in order below the layer TE XT. See the box on the Object Manager as follows: 7 To view with less information and be able to edit more easily connect the three buttons below the object manager: 1 - Show the object properties 2 - Editing in all three layers - the View layer manager Beginning the sixth edition To begin editing your drawing, initially, try dragging it to a point within the snap of your sheet. For example, the figure shows an upper left of the drawing p oint coinciding with a snap. This is desirable when your original drawing was al so made with a snap value (for 5 by 5 cm). Remember that the configuration of th
