The Mosaic Project is a worldwide unique software for the mosaic art and for mosaic making and manufacturing. Launched in 2008, Mosaic Project offers diverse solutions to mosaic ARTISTS and COMPANIES alike. It can be used from the mosaic first sketch down to robotic automation helping you achieve the best results from your work with minimal added effort because it significantly reduces the amount of time previously required to design and assemble a mosaic thus leaving you time to be creative and (why not?) drive new trends in mosaic making.
Our wide users base ranges from the simple beginner or enthusiast to the large manufacturing company and we have specific products and services for each segment, including enterprise features such as data centralization or ERP systems interfacing.
A simple Wizard will transform an image into a mosaic, ready to work with. Many parameters allow you to work with tiles, dimensions or sheets, according to your needs.
Draw using colors or grouts; it's enough to select them from a list (lists are customizable, of course, with your own products).
A click and you get the rendering, a photographic image of the final mosaic. The image quality is suitable for printed catalogs or 3D simulations (up to 50 MPixels at 32 bits).
A click and you get the Bill Of Materials (along with many other reports). Reports can be exported in the most common formats and sent by email (e.g.: a PDF email-attached report can be created in a single click).
The most important report is the MANUFACTURING BOOK: a page for each sheet of the mosaic, and you are ready to go. Put the tiles in the grid, it's a kids' game.
IA lot of time you have to deal with simple blends or gradients. It's handy to have a program to do this: just set tiles and percentages and you get stunning images in a click. Then send them away (by email, another click) for your customer or boss approval.
Work with gradients like never before! Get gradients done in a few clicks and enjoy the possibility to edit intermediate step, setting direction and number of steps. Use non-linear gradient development and set steps as small as a single tile, for smooth transitioning from dark to light.
Sosos allows you to draw single tiles as much as entire "andamento". You can draw in several modes: tile outlines, andamento geometry, color fill and rendering modes.
With a simple click you get an instant rendering of the final mosaic. The rendering is made according to the palette being used (it can be glass, marble or whichever, see Palette Builder section, below).
The SOSOS software can be used to copy: you put an image on the background and draw on it; this is also suitable for mosaic restoration projects.
A palette can be created to reflect a commercial set of products or the tile size or the materials used or whatever reason, you can create even a quick palette and hi quality palette. It is so quick to make a palette: you transform an entire folder of images into palette just pressing one button. Palettes can be put on server shares and are shared among programs, computers, organization units and people.
