View Full Version : Corel x6

just upgraded to corel X6. this is probably a simple problem but it has me scratching my head. when I send a RGB 255 red hairline outline to be cut to the laser it won't cut it. it shows up blue. like there is a RGB CMYK issue. not sure how to fix it though.

Surely someone else had this problem and has figured it out. Can't be just me?? :-)

There are many posts on this topic. A search on Corel X6 Upgrade will reveal lots of answers. This was the latest post a week or so ago.

A hairline should cut regardless of color unless you have color mapping setup wrong.

Trotec allows 15 different color assignments with diffrent setting... engrave, cut, none. red is just one.

On the Trotec I believe you must use the rgb palette. X6 is set to default to cmyk so you must change the color settings and I believe this link will take you through the steps. http://www.engrave.ca/archives/5318
