Perspective Grid Maker



Perspective Grid Maker allows you to quickly generate grids to assist you in perspective drawing. This tool makes it super easy to create grids with 1-point, 2-point, 3-point and 5-point perspective. Some of the features included are:

  • 2D mode: position individual vanishing points.
  • 3D mode: adjustable 3D environment that enures accurate grid spacing.
  • Detailed control over grid-line parameters (visibility, colour, density etc).
  • Save grids as PNG files: Can choose to save grid-lines as separate layers - all images have transparent backgrounds.
  • Load up a background image to use as reference.

Great ! I've just purchased it and it's very effective ! Thanks. ! (The fisheye grid is so cool !)
But on my Mac, the canvas is always fitted the window and I can't zoom/dezoom the canvas or move it with with the Apple mighty mouse (without scroll wheel). So it's hard to place the vanishing points far to the sides :(. Can you solve this?

Feature requests: 

-Show the horizon line and, in 2D mode link it to the vanishing points

-in 3D mode : shorten further the render distance (too much lines near the horizon make a confused cluster)


But for now it's already cool :)

Thanks for supporting! I've added a quick fix for the OSX version that allows you to:

  • pan the canvas by holding SHIFT while you click and drag
  • zoom in/out with the -/= keys 

Hope this is useful. Let me know if you have any issues with it. Re new features: It's unlikely that I'll add any additional stuff (sorry :( ) but you never know, maybe one day. Thanks :)

Fast and effective :) Thanks

Feature request: In 3D perspective, it looks like the grids above and below the horizontal line don't have the same division. Can we have the option to enable it? And about the cube, can we have one cube that always on the ground? This way we can easily measure the correct height (it's more difficult when the cube is in the air)

Thanks for downloading the tool! I can definitely add a setting to change how the cube behaves. 

Could you post a screenshot of the unequal line divisions? There's a button that should set the line divisions to remain equal but it's possible you've found a bug. Here's the button:

Feature request: add support to copy grid to clipboard, and also importing images from clipboard. downloading/saving images is such a hassle. Grids are very temporary use usually.

Thankss xD

Thanks for using the tool :) The engine I used to make this doesn't have an easy way of setting images on the clipboard but I'll see what I can do - I agree it would be a useful feature.
