ImagePaint - 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 a patent pending 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, sea shells and other decorative materials.


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.

What’s New in Version 3.0?

ImagePaint 3.0 has redefined what “CNC Software Friendliness” means. Users no longer need to get involved in setting up the CAD software to perform a CNC task. With a single mouse click, before creating the toolpaths, ImagePaint lookups all CNC settings required to cut one or more material in a single CNC session. At Amazon Canvas, if the software can do it, we let it!

What can you create?

With ImagePaint, you can create artworks made of wood veneers, fabric, sea shells, marbles 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 automation design technology.

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 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.


ImagePaint Production Pro for Laser

ImagePaint Production Pro contains all functions necessary for users to paint vector shapes with JPEG images. These JPEG images are scanned or photographed images of the decorative materials used to create the product. Once the vector shapes have been applied with images, ImagePaint automatically generates the toolpaths ready to be cut with a laser. Find out more...

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.

ArtEdit
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
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.
  • Transformation Styles automatically calculate complex equations, so user can concentrate on high level tasks.
