Glass Eye 2000 Standard Edition
- 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.

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 .Read more ›
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 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!
