SolidWorks and CorelDRAW are used for engineering and design.

SolidWorks and CorelDRAW are applications used for engineering and design purposes. SolidWorks is a computer-aided design program, while CorelDRAW is a vector-based graphics program. Each software has its own proprietary file type: SolidWorks uses .sldprt files, while CorelDRAW uses .cdr files. Fortunately, both softwares can import and export a wide range of file types. You can transfer project files from one application to the other without using any third-party applications.
