Welding in CorelDRAW - page 6
With everything still selected use the Transform Roll-Up to apply a vertical scale of 57.4 percent. If I apply an extrude effect at this point I will get some extra vertical lines [see the example]. I have marked the offending nodes in black Use the Node Edit Tool (F10) and Node Edit Roll-Up to smooth those nodes. Marquee select everything with the Pick Tool and combine (Ctrl+L) and fill with white.
Apply an Extrude (Ctrl+E) with these settings: back parallel, VP locked to object, object center, Horizontal 0, Vertical -0.30. If the result is too thick or thin adjust the vertical dimension until it looks right.
To render: Separate the Extrude Group, click off, select the group and un-group (Ctrl+U). All fills will be Fountain Fills, select the object then (F11). Select the top and apply these settings - Conical, Angle = -60 degrees, Custom and choose - Position 0 = C10, M5, K30; Position 50 = white; Position 100 = C10, M5, K25. Select the sides of the five holes and apply these settings - Linear, Custom and choose - Position 0 = C10, M5, K50; Position 35 = C5, M3; Position 100 = C10, M5, K60; Select the two front [left] objects and apply these settings - Linear, Custom and choose - Position 0 = C10, M5, K60; Position 16 = C10, M5, K10; Position 100 = C10, M5, K70. Select the center bottom object and apply these settings - Linear, Custom and choose - Position 0 = C10, M5, K60; Position 16 = C10, M5, K10; Position 42 = C10, M5, K50; Position 75 = white; Position 100 = C10, M5, K40. Select the two sides [right] and apply these settings - Linear, Custom and choose - Position 0 = C10, M5, K50; Position 75 = white; Position 100 = C10, M5, K40.
