A number of people that have Vision Engravers want to send jobs directly from CorelDraw to the engraver. With the Vision S3 controllers you can do this very easily

Import a Logo
Let us import a logo into the job. Go to File (1) and Import (2).
Our Logo is Imported
Here is our logo. It is a good vector image. Notice though that it still has the black fill. The Vision machine will not engrave the black fill so we might as well get rid of it so we can see what we are getting. To see the job with no fill turn on Wireframe.
Switch to WireFrame
Select VIEW (1) than WIREFRAME (2).
