    Creating Photos with Circles

    This is a program I created for fun. Run the executable, Pixelator.

    When run, set the largest circle you want and the smallest circle you want.
    Approx numbers: .001 for smallest and .010 for biggest. It's best if you make sure the X-Pitch and Y-Pitch is greater then the largest circle so you don't get any overlap. You can also include color information too. The image comes out rotated and mirrored, so you'll have to rotate and mirror the image in AutoCAD. Once you hit the "Go" button, save the file to a csv file. Then load mpic.fas into AutoCad and run mpic. Search for the file you saved earlier and open it. It may take a while to open.

    Just for Fun!

    Newer And Better Pixelator

    Just thought I would upload a newer version of Pixelator. I have also attached a document that describes all the features. I fixed the mirroring and rotation problem along with some other minor fixes. Make sure you use the file mpicV7.fas with this new version.

    I originally wrote this program to create artwork to be used as a photomask to etch photos on metal surfaces. I have also used it to create metal business cards with photos on it.

    It's still fun to play around with.

    Have fun with it!
