The recommended graphic design software in think[box] is CorelDraw. The laser cutter and vinyl cutter in particular were designed to work with CorelDraw. These machines may also work with Adobe Illustrator, however there are a number of issues and bugs that are completely avoided by using the recommended software, CorelDraw.
CorelDraw is available on all think[box] computers, and also at the Nord computer lab. Due to the limited number of computers in think[box], users are asked to work on their designs in the Nord lab or on their personal computers, and visit think[box] when their designs are complete and they are ready to use the machines. Doing this is part of proper lab etiquette, and helps everyone use the lab more efficiently.
