In the modern world, accurate and precise technical drawings are a requirement in many industries. The same exactness and precision that makes your drawings so valuable are the same things that might turn away potential clients. Don't cloud your ideas with straight lines and hard edge corners. Express your concepts without confusing clients with unnecessary details. With Squiggle 6, get the traditional hand-drawn look you want using the CAD drawings you've already spent valuable time creating.

Why use Squiggle?

  • While computer generated drawings certainly have their place, in many applications, such as architectural and industrial design, a stylized illustration is often more effective.
  • The advantages of illustration are numerous. Illustrations can convey information better by omitting extraneous detail, by focusing attention on relevant features, by clarifying and simplifying shapes or by exposing parts that are hidden.
  • Squiggle transforms your CAD drawings into hand-drawn illustrations, adding style and emphasis to presentations, brochures and other promotional materials.

How Does Squiggle Work?
Squiggle reads each file and allows the user to vary the width and/or color of each of up to 255 lines/pens and then to apply an unlimited number of "hand-drawn" styles to each line. Users can choose from 7 preset styles that range from "carefully sketched with a drafting pen" to "scribbled on the back of a napkin" and an unlimited number of easy-to-create custom styles.
Each line is Squiggled independently and results are not precisely predictable, just like the human hand! Squiggle even lets you combine different Squiggle styles in one image. You control which "pens" get squiggled. Squiggled drawings can be sent to any Windows system printer, copied to the Windows Clipboard, or exported as raster, vector or pdf files for import into other applications.

Who Needs Squiggle?
technical illustrators, industrial designers artists, and home hobbyists--all use Squiggle.
