Artlandia Releases SymmetryWorks 2.0 Preview

Full version of Illustrator pattern generator coming later this year By Dave Nagel
Artlandia has announced version 2.0 or its SymmetryWorks plugin for Adobe Illustrator. As part of the announcement, Artlandia is making a preview release of version 2.0 available to those who preorder version 1.0 now. It's available for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

SymmetryWorks is a plugin for Adobe Illustrator that allows users to generate surface patterns. Version 2.0 introduces two new automation features for pattern generation, including Replicas and Layouts. The Replicas feature allows users to create all-over designs; tossed layouts; gradations and optical patterns; and spot, step, sliding, composite and counterchanged repeats. The Layouts feature allows the software to remember the parameters or a pattern and then apply these parameters later for instant pattern generation.


Pricing on the final version of SymmetryWorks 2.0 has not yet been announced. Those who purchase version 1.0 at its promotional price of $124.95 now will receive the preview release of version 2.0 immediately and a free upgrade to the final version when it becomes available.
