  • Glass Eye 2000 is software that gives stained glass artists a simple way to create, adapt, and print custom patterns using their computers. Start with any of the 400 patterns in its library or design a pattern from scratch with a collection of easy to learn, easy to use drawing tools. Glass Eye 2000 has been called "the industry standard in stained glass design software" by both Spectrum Glass and Glass Patterns Quarterly.
  • Use your scanner to import patterns. Just scan, rotate if you need to, resize, and print.
  • Experiment with different glass colors and textures in your design to visualize your creation before cutting a single piece. Glass Eye 2000 can number all your pieces instantly.
  • Includes a calculator that shows materials usage, and a handy cost estimator that takes the guesswork out of pricing your design.
  • Glass Eye 2000 can print to any Windows-compatible printer on a single sheet or at the design's actual size. If the design doesn't fit on a single sheet, it automatically "tiles" the image to several sheets you can then assemble into a full-scale pattern.

I bought The Glass Eye a few years ago just as I was getting ready to retire from a position as Systems Manager for CADD equipment (Computer Aided Design and Drafting). As a Systems Manager, I had more than fifteen years of experience managing, drawing, and teaching CADD in two different companies. I had been designing and drawing stained glass layouts using a variety of drawing packages. I have been working with stained glass for almost thirty years and have been selling my work, seriously, for about six years.

With The Glass Eye, I was amazed at how quickly I could put a design together. I was able to easily put any type of picture (or piece of a picture) into a bitmap background, draw the lead/foil lines over it to create my stained glass drawing, then scale it to the size I wanted, and print out my patterns. This was a simple, quick way to create my own custom designs. I used The Glass Eye for about a year and a half, until Glass Eye 2000 became available.

As soon as I read about the new features, I was ready to purchase the Professional Version without even trying it. But, I downloaded the trial version. After just a few days, I ordered the Professional Version. I was happy with The Glass Eye. I am ecstatic with Glass Eye 2000.

The best new feature, in my opinion, is the glass library. With it, I can choose manufactures' colors (with catalog number) and paint my design with streakies, waterglass, textures, etc. I have actual glass samples which I purchased from the glass manufacturers and the library takes a lot of guesswork out of how the glass will actually look in the finished project. I also like the new text writing feature and the fact that the individual pieces of glass in my design are numbered for me. To be able to email a drawing (in .

I have the Professional Plus Edition and can't believe how much this software has helped in my design work. I find it very user friendly, an exceptionally fun and useful tool for creating designs in a short period of time with instant results thanks to all the different effects. It's exciting to watch my designs come alive when the glass colors and textures are added. I wonder how I ever got along without it. What used to take me days is now done in a few hours. One of the nicest features (of the many) is once my drawing is complete and I add the color and glass texture I am able to present to my client a very professional looking presentation. Another big big plus is that if any changes are to be made they are done in minutes. You truly do make a quality and useful program for us stained glass people. Keep up the good work.

P.S. If you are wondering about customer support, they're THE BEST and Very Prompt. They even ask for your input and suggestions as to what features you might like to have on their future upgrades. Incidentially, which most are Free!

As a designer for 12 years, I've used many software drawing programs (Photoshop, Illustrator, and more). All of them involve a rather difficult learning curve to become proficient in their use. Glass Eye 2000 is easy to install and so intuitive to use that I was able to begin a project within ten minutes after installation. Among many things, I find the "Properties" function is especially helpful regarding materials usage, construction cost and pricing. Thank you for a wonderful software package. Now, all I have to do is add my imagination. You've thought of everything else!

Glass Eye 2000 is an indispensable part of my business! As the owner of a studio that does only commissioned work, the "see before you buy" feature has enabled me to nearly double my annual sales. Also, time between initial customer consultation and a signed contract has been substantially reduced. With the use of my laptop and a digital projector, my customers and I can explore glass alternative selections almost instantly. Furthermore, the use of a projector enables the customer to see an accurate rendition of the final product in its intended location. This capability worked particularly well during the design stages of two church commissions currently in progress.

Dragonfly customer service has been absolutely wonderful to work with. Their timely responses and personal one-on-one care has been a breath of fresh air. The Dragonfly company truly lives up to the pride in ownership that seems to be lost with most online companies. I have great respect and confidence in them and their products.
As a teacher in the Art of Stained Glass, Glass Eye has allowed me to open a world of original designs aimed at beginning students. The software is user friendly and my students can start creating thier own original patterns right away. It is so nice to be able to teach them HOW to design and then be able to produce the piece. The amazing array of glass samples is outstanding! My students just marvel at the details within the program and the ease of use. They cant' get enough!
Once again. Dragonfly has great customer service for a great user friendly product. A BIG high 5 for Dragonfly!
