Xara :: How To Use Mold Tool

Nov 25, 2012

I don't know how to use efficiently the mold tool ( not a lot of tutorials about it ) .

Maybe it's not possible in Xara but here is an example from an artist's work where the text ( and picture ) fits very well on the page :

I'd like to use the same effect ( or a little better than I usually do ) on some personal works but :

Could be better ... I'm sure I don't know to use well mold tool, though ...

Xara :: Selector Tool Becomes Page-size Change Tool

Aug 6, 2011

In Xara Designer Pro 7, when I have selector tool active and want to drag over a number of elements to select them the selector tool will change the size of the canvas (page). Is that not a bug? I used this way of selecting elements often, and it is not good for me with this new behaviour.

Is it a bug or is it a new setting which I then need to change?

Xara :: An Offset Tool?

Oct 4, 2012

I'm using Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 6 and I'm having fun with it. But there's one functionality I can't seem to find that I really need. I'm a CAD operator (and have that mentality), and I really want my AutoCAD Offset tool. It allows you to copy a line or shape a certain distance away. More importantly, if you "offset" a shape inside or outside it's boundary, it automatically makes the new shape equidistant from all the borders.

Anyway to do it in Xara P&GD6?

Xara :: Clone Tool In XD7

Jun 26, 2011

In Xara P+Designer 6 I can select an area to clone, then edit that selection with the Selector Tool.

I don't seem to manage that in XD 7 doing the identical thing, well, attempting to. Am I not doing something that I should be doing, for it to do the same as in Xara D6?

I can edit with the Shape Editor tool, but not rotate with the Selector Tool.

Xara :: How Useful Mask Tool Is

Oct 6, 2011

how useful the mask tool is! I've been exploring it. It's perfect for working on things like erasing edges of lines, splitting objects, you name it! It's so much better than the older method of having to make objects on top of an object or whatever..

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Create Slide For The Mold

Nov 19, 2012

How to create a slide for the mold I am designing. I have looked at the tooling tutorials but they are not very useful when it comes to something which doesn't follow the tutorial workflow.

In the case of our product I require that the cavity which has been created to be split down the centre into two halves (essentially the cavity becomes the slides). I have tried a number of methods to achieve this but can't get it right.

Xara :: Adding Pen Tool Buttons?

Apr 27, 2013

I cannot seem to add the pen tool button.

I know there is a general way to do this but it seems to elude me at the moment. I go to the button palette and can use the tool from there but would prefer that is was on the side bar.

Xara :: Tool To Adjust Contrast Of Group?

Dec 30, 2012

Is there a tool to correct the colors of shapes in a group in Designer Pro x?

I mean something that can change contrast, brightness and saturation of all colors in the group at once.

For now I use the bitmap filter "Enhance" but sadly the outlines become jaggy by this.

Xara :: Crop And Straighten With The Fill Tool?

Dec 19, 2012

You can easily fix crooked photos, zoom and crop with the fill tool.

The first step is to make sure you have the rulers enabled (window>bars>rulers) then click and drag a horizontal guideline from the ruler.

Select your photo and select the fill tool, you will see that your photo is actually a vector shape with a bitmap fill. Click and drag the outer fill handles to enlarge (zoom) the bitmap within the shape and rotate as needed to straighten the image. Move the cursor over the line of the fil handles until it changes to a hand then click and drag the photo around to adjust it's position within the shape.

Xara :: Color Select / Erase Tool

Just downloaded/purchased DesignerPro X and do not understand how to use this tool. I followed the instructions in the help file (as well as an old man can!) and cannot get it to work. For instance, I cannot get the color tolerance/fade controls to move off of 20/25% respectively. If you specify which photo you are using in the Design gallery, I will follow along.

Xara :: Using Color Select / Erase Tool

Aug 8, 2012

I am trying to change the hue of the sky in a photo. Following the instructions in the Help file, I first used the Color Select/Erase Tool to click on the sky in several areas to erase it. The instructions then say "Now select the Make Mask button on the Infobar." My problem is that I don't see a Make Mask button. I see a Make soft mask button and an Edit Input Mask button. Since the instructions go on to talk about these other two buttons, it seems clear that they are not the Make Mask button. So where is that button?

I might add that I am also looking for a way to make just one part of a graphic transparent. Would this Color Select/Erase Tool be appropriate for doing that?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating Female Mold From Male For Skateboard?

Jan 25, 2013

I spent quite a bit of time modeling up a male sided mold to press skateboards in a vaccum bag. I want to create a female mold from this file, but need to make sure there is a 1/2" off set to account for board thickness. I've looked at derive and mold but since I have zero experience with either command I have spent hours going in circles.

The attached picture is what my mold looks like. Just a big rectangle that is 2" thick with some rounded contours cut on the top.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Mold Design - Gate Placement And Shape

Dec 20, 2013

my problem is that when I go to put in a gate (in this case a fan gate) of the type and shape shown below, I can't do it.  It seems like gates have to only be above or below the parting line, rather than right on (and symmetrical about) it, and a fan gate (apparently) must always have a flat bottom. 

(This is a snip of the drawing for the actual tool.  I have to run some mold flow analysis on it before we authorize cutting steel.  I could just model the whole 2-cavity assembly with gates and runners, and then lie to Inventor and tell it that the part actually has a sprue gate ... but I'd prefer to do it the right way.)
