ImagePaint Software - Creating Marquetry and Inlay Artworks using Lasers and CNC Routers

Modern Laser Wood Inlay/Marquetry Technique (Click to Play)

Painting Shapes with JPG Images (Click to Play)

Artworks displayed in the slides above were designed with ImagePaint Production Pro. Real wood veneers were cut with an Epilog Laser Mini 18 using ImagePaint's Automatic Production CNC Interface. Some images shown above represents the actual physical artworks, while others represent the finished designs still in digital format. With ImagePaint, you don't have to be an artist to take your design to a new dimension.

What is ImagePaint?

ImagePaint is an Adobe Illustrator plug-in (patent pending). ImagePaint software introduced a unique concept "What You See Is What You Get" into the art of, but not limited to, material inlay/marquetry design and production. In addition to features supported in ImagePaint Design Pro, the Production edition includes additional features required to take a finished digital design and turn it into a physical product.

End Users

ImagePaint was designed to serve the needs of graphic designers and craftsmen who work with various materials such as wood, marble, fabric, mother-of-pearl, or any other textures to produce digital and or physical artworks made of said materials, all at the same speed as designing with ordinary colors.

ImagePaint Design Pro

ImagePaint Design Pro contains all functions necessary for graphic designers to paint vector shapes with JPEG images. It organizes these images in an Image Library similar to the way Adobe Illustrator Color Swatch Libraries are organized. Using ImagePaint shapes can be painted with images from one or more Image Libraries loaded into an Image Palette, by simply selecting the shapes and click on an Image Swatch in the Image Palette. It also gives the users the ability to move and rotate shapes anywhere on the image and instantly preview the results on the artwork. Find out more...

ImagePaint Design Pro does not have the capability to take a digital design to a physical product. For this, you would need ImagePaint Production Pro.

ImagePaint Production Pro

For craftsmen making decorative products using techniques such as marquetry and material inlay, ImagePaint Production Pro contains all features in the ImagePaint Design Pro plus additional functionalities necessary to take a finished digital design and convert all shapes in the design to toolpaths that can be printed on the material with a printer for cutting with a hand tool, or sent to a CNC machine for cutting with its cutting technology. The toolpaths are generated using advanced algorithm to assure each and every cut will fit together perfectly to produce the highest quality product, in the shortest amount of time. As a result, users can see and make changes to the design before it is built, effectively; allowing designers to take full advantage of the colors and textures in the material during the creative design stage, and for the first time, to visualize the finished product before materials are cut.

ArtBlue - Advanced Adobe Illustrator Plug-in for Vector Design

The Magic of ArtBlue

ArtBlue featured in "The 15 best Adobe Illustrator plugins" at Creative Blog.

ArtBlue Gold 2.5 software package for Adobe Illustrator now includes 4 new plug-ins: ArtShapes, ArtMatrix, CustomShapes and ArtTutor. In total, ArtBlue Gold contains 6 plug-ins for Adobe Illustrator, working seamlessly in a single environment to optimize performance and minimize system overhead.
ArtMatrix is a one-of-a-kind shape transformation engine that can convert a few shapes into many shapes, forming complex and stunning geometric sculptures. Complex algorithms had to be invented, involving waveform generators of various types, all combined to transform basic shapes into spectacular and unpredictable shape formations.
Images shown below were created with ArtMatrix. From a single path, ArtMatrix creates many copies, applies color, opacity and arrange them according to user input parameters.

ArtMatrix Control Panel, as shown on the right, includes four collapsible sections: Basic Shape Control, Geometry Matrix, Color Matrix and ArtTutor.
ArtShapes provides basic shape creation tools, and in concert with ArtTrack, establishes a complete and user friendly environment for creating, rotating, scaling, and reflecting shapes, while effortlessly snapping to another object, all in a single mouse stroke.
CustomShape imports shapes from Photoshop's custom shape files into Illustrator and used by ArtShapes tool to draw user created shapes. User created shapes created in Illustrator can also be exported to Photoshop .csh file for use by Photoshop's Custom Shape tool.
Art3D was designed to vastly improve the design and workflow for users working in 3D space using Illustrator's Perspective Grid.

The path-editing tool is the most used tool in Illustrator. Unfortunately, most Illustrator users use more than one path-editing tool.  As a consequence, more time is spent switching between different tools and less time on editing the design. ArtEdit was developed with one objective - Minimize time spent on editing paths, aligning, reshaping paths and other objects, while providing many essential features to perform complex tasks that are not possible with other editing tools. ArtEdit contains 7 tools: Basic Editing, Scale, Relative, Rotate, Reflect, Copy-Paste-Replace and Corner Rounding tools. Each of the 7 Tools in ArtEdit contains cutting-edge functions, exclusively developed from ArtBlue technology.
ArtTrack ties it all together. All tools in ArtBlue rely on ArtTrack, instead of SmartGuide, to snap and align to other art objects. It contains basic art tracking functions, plus advanced functions unique only to ArtBlue. All functions are fully configurable by user to make art tracking a snap.

ArtMatrix Control Panel

  • Tutorials run inside Illustrator to help user quickly explores the many unique features in ArtBlue.
  • Factory's Presets provide starting points for new designs.
