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. ImagePaint introduces a unique concept "What You See Is What You Get" into the art of, but not limited to, material inlay/marquetry design and production. It is a 2D material-based graphic design software that allows users to take full advantage of the textures, colors and tonal variations of the physical materials, thus adding 3D visual effects to a 2D artwork. Inside Adobe Illustrator, these physical materials are JPEG images of actual raw materials such as wood, stones, fabric, seashells and other decorative materials.

What can you create?

With ImagePaint, you can create artworks made of wood veneers, fabric, seashells and other decorative materials. You can inlay these artworks into furniture, cabinets, floors, jewelry, trophies, wooden boxes, guitars and other high end, custom made products. It may not be clear what other products you can create with ImagePaint until you have learned what it can do and how it can help you expand your creativity through its advanced product visualization features and its image-based design technology.

Is it easy to use?

With ImagePaint, users with little experience in using Adobe Illustrator and CNC technologies such as laser and CNC router, can quickly create toolpaths ready to be sent to the CNC for cutting. After the material is cut, ImagePaint updates and creates new images to facilitate material reuse. So, Adobe Illustrator gives you the best-in-class tools to create the vector design and ImagePaint gives you the only tool available to visualize and turn that vector design into a product.

End Users

ImagePaint software is developed by engineers and artists for artists, craftsmen, furniture makers, cabinet makers, sign makers, trophy makers, interior designers, architects, students and woodworking enthusiasts. Creative users require creative tools, so ImagePaint had placed high emphasis on product visualization, software automation and ease of use. It was designed to take away the mundane computer design tasks, the requirements of the users understanding the technical CNC jargon and the expertise in setting up a CAD software to properly control a CNC. So, if you just want to spend the time to create art and let the software handles the rest of the other boring, but necessary technical tasks, then ImagePaint is the right software for you. On the other hand, if you enjoy working at the technical level, then Image Paint can inspire you too, with its fully user-configurable interface.
