Weekend Widget: UniConvertor

June 6, 2009

How often do you get vector graphics files in a format that you can’t use? People who aren’t CorelDRAW users find it particularly painful to deal with CorelDRAW files. And if you aren’t using the latest version of CorelDRAW, how do you deal with newer versions of the files?

UniConvertor bills itself as the “universal vector graphics translator”. I don’t think I would call it universal, but it does support a nice list of formats for import and export. I have not yet tested it with some complex files, but I’m sure it is better than not being able to deal with a file at all. Go ahead and see if it works for your needs. You can download it for free!

While on the site, you might want to explore some of the other tools available. sK1 is a free vector graphics editor. Right now the only builds available are for various flavors of Unix/Linux. I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see a Windows version created in the future. If you are a developer who wants to work with CDR files, you might want to check out CDR explorer. The source code is available for those who are interested. There is no downloadable “utility” so it isn’t of interest if you aren’t a developer.

If you give UniConvertor a try, please post a comment describing your experience.
