Arabeske Studio is a Java tool designed to help arabesque drawings. It is particularly aimed at 3D artists wishing to use complex patterns for their scene settings, including walls, parquets, windows, but can be used as a special 2D drawing tool to design original patterns. It relies on a heavy use of symmetry groups to quickly produce amazing frames, easy to texture and use as image maps. Several 2D export formats are supported, and POV-Ray users will benefit from a powerful dedicated exporter.
