    I've designed a multilayer logo on coreldraw x3 and need to send it to my vinyl cutting program. The problem is that when I export it to Cut Studio it exports all the cut lines for each layer like the pictures below. I need to merge or melt all 3 layers together in corel to 1 layer so that I don't have cut lines going over other cut lines. Hope the picture explains it better.

    Select them all and then use the "simplify" option under the weld tab.

    If this does not work you can select all the center elements and use the outline command also under the weld tab.

    If you still can't get what you want add a new layer and use the smart fill tool to create a new single object - then delete the multi part layers.

    The objects that make up the Texas should be "combine"(d) first to make an object and then start to weld your objects together.

    You might want to consider CoCut Pro, for the future. It saves a bunch of steps and time by making CorelDRAW designs vinyl-ready when they're sent to the cutter. (from within Corel) It automatically groups and welds objects for cut-by-color and gives you the option of adding reg-marks for lining up the color layers.

    Best,

    Jim
