||Your last step is to create a line of text that
reads; "Copyright 2000, John Morris", convert it to curves and
export it to position 255.
Note: You are licensed to use the symbol set but not to reproduce, sell or share it with anyone.
Refer to the previous tutorial for instructions on exporting the added symbols. Once you have added all of these symbols to the library you must:
From the Control Panel, Fonts delete the old version of the iso_essentials.ttf font.
Install the new version.
Open CorelDRAW and drag symbol 0139 (housing) and 0145 (cover) onto the screen at a 4-inch size.
||If you had to illustrate a gearbox housing and cover you
might expect to spend an hour. To both objects apply an 86.6 percent
horizontal stretch and a –30.0 degree vertical skew.
Rotate –120 degrees.
Use the Extrusion tool to apply an extrusion to the housing with the following settings: Back parallel, x = 0.00 y=-0.50, VP locked to object and vanishing point relative to object center. Smooth all nodes.
||Create a 3.00-inch diameter circle. Convert it to an
isometric ellipse by applying a 56.6 percent vertical stretch. Align it
centered on the cover and combine (Ctrl+L). Use the Extrusion tool to
apply an extrusion to the cover with the following settings: Back
parallel, x = 0.00 y=-0.02, VP locked to object and vanishing point
relative to object center. Smooth all of the nodes causing the extra
Now if we could just assemble this thing as efficiently. We need some bolts, washers, lock washers and nuts. Next month we will begin the construction of a hardware symbol library. Save this step for later use.
