I am supposed to design the lettering for the transporter of my company. I received the technical drawings of the transporter in various formats. It is a mystery to me how the designs of the technical drawings should be placed on the van. Can someone please briefly explain to me how the procedure works now? What is required of me? The fact that I don’t understand how the whole procedure takes place and what exactly I am supposed to do now makes it very difficult for me to start with the design at all.
Is it the case that I put the graphics in vector format on the technical drawing, export the whole thing in the right format and the foiler takes the graphics from the resulting file himself and plots them in the right scale? I think I’ll use CorelDRAW X5 for editing; I’ve gotten around working with a vector program so far and have done my job to my satisfaction with Clip Studio Paint EX. If my guess is correct, in what format would I have to export? Do you have any more advice for me?
I hope you can and will help me, even though I’m more of an amateur than a trained designer, as you can probably tell by the fact that I’ve been able to avoid the use of vectors so far.
