eCut 6 upgrade (from version 5 or earlier)

This item is ONLY for users who already bought Ecut 5 or earlier versions before Sept. 1/2014.

If you have unused codes from previous purchases (such as four-pack), you can get version 6 for free. If you didn’t buy ecut from macromonster.com before – do not buy this item. We check every past sale before releasing upgrade codes.

NOTE: This item can be installed on four different machines. So, think carefully about which 4 systems you want to run it on. Each key of the four we send will stay locked to that system only – forever.  Buy one install code if you only want ecut on one machine – and no others.

If you had bought Ecut 5 or earlier versions before Sept. 1/2014, go here for upgrade version.

Note: If your computer has both CorelDraw X6/X7/X8/2017/2018 installed (32-bit and 64-bit), the macro will work only in 32-bit version.

.NET Framework 4.0 and VBA Required (Visual Basic for Applications)

PLEASE REBOOT SYSTEM AFTER MACRO INSTALLATION

NOTE: This macro includes 3 activation codes for the low price shown. (Replacing the hard drive or any action with the hard drive will require a new activation code. You have the ability to activate the macro 3 times: on one PC or on 3 different PC’s.) Choose your systems carefully, since each code locks to a system permanently.

NOTE: This macro will only run on one machine (unless you buy the 4-pack version). Think carefully about which system you want to run it on, because an activation code locks the macro to that system only – forever. If you had bought Ecut 5 or earlier versions before Sept. 1/2014, go here for upgrade version.

Shelby’s Object Order & Tab Creator (for laser cutters)

The main purpose of this macro is to control which items are cut or produced first in a production environment. CNC equipment and vinyl cutters often cut items in a specific order.

These macros allow 3 things:

1. Intuitively change the stacking order of elements. Shift-select them in the order you want, and run the macro. You can force the last item selected to be the bottom of the stacking order, or the top.  The other shapes will correspond.

2. Add “tabs” to shapes so that they won’t be entirely cut out from the substrate below. Handy for laser or plasma cutters who don’t want cut out pieces to fall away from the material being cut into.

3. NEW (May 2010): A macro to set CorelDRAW coordinates to the top left of the current document. That’s right! the rulers will show 0:0 at top left.

4. NEW (July 2016): Now includes a macro to allow custom tab size.

James Leonard’s PRO DXFTool – 64 Bit Version

Here’s the latest upgrade of the DXFTool for CorelDRAW – the Pro Version. This is an upgrade to the Standard Version and has enhanced features.

Compatible with CorelDraw X6 (64 bit only) – IMPORTANT no future updates for CorelDRAW versions past X6

This is the BEST way to make DXF files for CNC, Router, Mill, Plasma, Laser and Vinyl cutting use.

Instead of the segmented, lines-only CorelDRAW DXF, this useful tool makes arc and line exports that make smooth cuts and much smaller files. NO ‘convert to curves’ is needed for your artwork. Text exports without any extra operations and is ALWAYS editable text in CorelDRAW!

The easiest, fastest way to ultra-quality DXF files!

The DXFTool is a DLL add-on that provides very high quality DXF files for later use in CAD/CAM programs. This tool converts Bezier curves in CorelDRAW to LINE and ARC DXF entities only. Instead of a large number of very short straight lines, the DXF file export will have less nodes and the smoothest curves as can be made from the CorelDRAW shapes in your drawing.

Compatible with CorelDraw X6 (64 bit only) on Windows 7

IMPORTANT: no future updates for CorelDRAW versions past X6

DXFTool Professional release 1.5 has the following fixes and changes:

  • Support for multiple user accounts with the same license
  • Single folder install for all versions
  • Single installer for all versions
  • Added support for Home and Student X6
  • Added support for Technical Suite X6

James Leonard’s Artwork Optimizer Standard – 64 Bit

This plugin performs shape sequence / stacking order optimization inside CorelDRAW.

Compatible with CorelDRAW X6 (64 bit only)

IMPORTANT: no future updates for CorelDRAW versions past X6

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 vinyl cutters, also improves accuracy. The reason is that the vinyl is fed back and forth through the machine to a lesser degree.

It’s common for objects to become scattered in the stacking order due to cut-and-paste and other operations. (Jeff’s note: especially after using a nesting tool such as ecut which aggressively optimizes spacing of various shapes to save material: ecut was used in advance for the examples below. The Artwork Optimizer does not nest shapes).

The red lines and arrows show the sequence in which the drawing will be processed.

Here’s some sample files showing before and after.

The difference is dramatic: the Artwork Optimizer has processed drawings as large as 12000 objects and the 6000 object drawing used during development rearranged the elements in about 10 seconds. Files such as the above only take a few seconds.

Compatible with CorelDRAW X6 (64 bit only) on Windows 7

IMPORTANT: no future updates for CorelDRAW versions past X6

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.

Artwork Optimizer Standard Edition 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.Added support for Home and Student X6 installations
  • Added support for Technical Suite X6 installations

James Leonard’s STANDARD DXFTool – 64 Bit only

This is the BEST way to make DXF files for CNC, Router, Mill, Plasma, Laser and Vinyl cutting use.
