History of beading with Peyote Creator

PeyoteCreator version 2.03 realised on August 15, 2022.Download now

PeyoteCreator version 1.14.02 realised on May 13, 2022.Download now

The program “PeyoteCreator” appeared at September 2020. It has implemented the basic features of creating beading schemes in classical and geometric formats. Below is information about all versions of the program. The next version work is underway. We accept your suggestions on its capabilities – iko57@mail.ru

Peyote Creator version 3.xx is currently being developed

Planned new features of the version:

  • Drawing on a substrate from an uploaded image(photo).
  • Combining the display of beading design and the photo background in translucent mode with the setting of the degree of translucency.
  • Capture color codes from the monitor screen and search for the closest color in the loaded color palette (Delica). This feature can be used when drawing a design from blank canvas.
  • The ability to output only the contours of beads without color for drawing from a blank canvas.
  • New weaving format 3d pod both peyote and brick variants. The option has been realizedsee the sample.
  • New weaving format earring. The option has been realized. Differs from 3d pod only in word chart – see the sample.
  • New weaving format ombre star.
  • New weaving format 3d jungle bell (circular peyote).
  • New classic weaving format circular grid (round peyote)see the sample.
  • Symmetric drawing featurte for all new weaving formats – see the sample.
  • Import loaded image colors for all new weaving formats – see the sample.
  • Add \ remove rows all new and old weaving formats.

History of beading with Peyote Creator version 2.XX

Version 2.03 realised on August 15. Now “legend” feature works for 3d peyote a star with 6 rays also.

Version 2.02 realised on June 21. The update concerns symmetrical drawing of the design of the general shape of geometric beading (peyote triangle, warped square, etc.). Now symmetrical drawing with a mirror image from left to right is available for such a design.

Version 2.01.02 realised on June 19. Fixed an error of PDF exporting of a list of used colors of 3d peyote star. Previously, this list included only the beads of the current visible side of the star.

Version 2.01 realised on June 16. Now the program has the ability to output a “legend” for 3d peyote a star. See details here. This feature is only available for stars with a ray count of 5.

History of beading with Peyote Creator version 1.XX

Version 1.14.02 realised on May 13. Found and fixed the following serious error that occurred under certain conditions after exporting 3d stars to pdf document. Sometimes after that, the scheme stopped being edited normally and it was necessary to restart the program.

Version 1.14 realised on March 31. The news belong to 3d peyote star. – It’s a possible to add\remove the star rows. – The status-bar displays detailed info about the bead under mouse location within the star ray.

Version 1.12 realised on March 16. Now 3d peyote star rays number can be in the range 4-16.

Version 1.11.02 realised on February 24. There are news regarding to 3d peyote star: – Symmetric drawing feature works more quickly. – Fixed following word chart bug: sometimes worked 1 columns mode output only, 2 and 3 columns modes worked not correct.

Version 1.11.01 realised on February 22. Now 3d peyote star with 7 rays can be made.

Version 1.10.01 realised on February 16. There are following news belong to 3d peyote star symmetric drawing feature – it’s a possible to draw with left to right mirror reflection, – it’s a possible to copy \ paste any ray as whole staff, – there is a feature for showing axises of symmetry according to selected parameters.

Version 1.09.01 realised on February 10. There are following news – 4 rays 3D peyote star realized. So PeyteCreator allows to create 4, 5, 6 rays peyote star, – user can to customize what geometrical pattern formats are interesing and display them only in the GUI, – warped square “classic” and “uniform” options removed from creation window, the window creates warped square “classic” option always. “Classic” and “uniform” exist as main menu items.

Version 1.08.01 realised on February 7. Import image on 3D peyote star has new option for importing on “both sides” variant, the option is “Reflect image left to rignt on another side”.

Version 1.07.01 realised on February 4. 3D peyote star symmetric drawing feature has new option: mirror reflection left to right while drawing copying beads on another star side.

Version 1.06.02 realised on February 1. Now “Edit color group” feature has next option for a star pattern format: select the color replacement workspace – both sides of the star at the same time or only the currently displayed side of the star. Also fixed following bugs. Both buttons “filled rectangle” and “filled circle” always worked with both star sides — no matter for ‘symmetrical drawing’ feature or without it.

Version 1.06.01A realised on January 25. “Edit color group” feature bug fixed.

Version 1.06.01 realised on December 24. 3D peyote star with 6 beams has been realised.

Version 1.05.01 realised on December 9. Symmetric drawing feature now is available for 3d peyote star.

Version 1.04.02a realised on September 2. One bug fixed.

Version 1.04.02 realised on September 1. Now import of picture colors for 3D Peyote Star design has 2 options regarding to the design side – import to one vizible side or import to both sides.

Version 1.04.01 realised on August 28. There is available a new geomertrical pattern format – 3D Peyote Star with 5 beams.

Version 1.03.09 realised on Jule 9. News of this version belongs to Word Chart output for 3D ball design. Now there is an option for output separate triangle image on whole PDF page.

Version 1.03.08 realised on Jule 2. All news belong to Warped Square pattern format. In prior program versions all beads of this format locates by nonstandard way – they locates uniformaly over whole square surface; it happened for same technical reasons. Now the beads can be arranged in a standard way, i.e. they are pressed as much as possible to the edges of the square, in the program this is called the “classic” type of design. The old version is also available, it is called the “uniform” design type. This option is available in the previous dialog for creating a design File \ New. You can also change the type\appearance of an already created warped square – classic to uniform and vice versa. See main menu items “File \ Warped Square \ Classic Warped Square” and “File \ Warped Square \ Uniforf Warped Square”.

Version 1.03.07 realised on May 19, 2021. It has added following feature belongs to “Symmetric paint” dialog for Hexagon Triangle geometric pattern format. That pattern consists from 6 Peyote Triangles. Earlier the dialog allows repeating user drawing within separate triangle. Now it allows repainting the drawing on other triangles. There are 4 options – repeat the drawing at all triangles, – repeat the drawing through one triangle, – repeat the drawing through two triangles, – don’t repeat the drawing.

Version 1.03.06 realised on May 10, 2021. It has added 2 new columns to display the list of palette colors. 1st new column is “Symbols color identifiers”. Previously, such icon symbols were displayed at the beginning of the “Mfg code” column, clicking on the column sorted the colors by the value of the mfg code, it was impossible to sort the list of colors by the value of the symbol. This created a noticeable inconvenience when searching for the desired color in the palette by its symbol. Now this logical GUI design error is eliminated and you can easily find any color in the palette in the same way as we search the dictionary for a word by its 1st letter. The 2nd new column “Color view” is displayed simply by filling the column rectangle with the corresponding color of the palette. Previously, such a color fill was like the background of the “Mfg code” column. The text of this code was visually confused with the fill color, plus there was an identifier symbol at the beginning of the column. Now all these elements are separated into separate columns, the width and display of which are adjusted independently.

Version 1.03.05 realised on April 24, 2021. Added the ability to create a collage by repeating the design by copying it a specified number of times horizontally and / or vertically. This feature can be useful when creating bracelets, etc. See the “Edit \ Repeat Design” main menu item.

Version 1.03.04 realised on April 13, 2021. It added code to compensate for the error of the March update of Windows 10, as a result of which the following error appeared in the program. When displaying a graphic design image (export to PDF and export to a graphic file), a monotonous black rectangle was displayed instead of a colored picture of beads. A kind of electronic analogue of the famous “black square” of Malevich.

Version 1.03.03 realised on March 04, 2021. There is an ability to show build process of the design assembling – some kind of dynamic word chart. See the main menu item “Service \ Show build process”.

Version 1.03.02 realised on March 1, 2021. Fixed bug in “Edit color group” dialog. Simplified GUI of the dialogs “Edit color group” and “Change palette”.

Version 1.03.01 realised on February 25, 2021. Added the ability to create a 3-dimensional ball beading scheme. See the main menu item File \ Composite \ 3d ball.

Version 1.02.04 realised on January 24, 2021. Added the ability to output a word chart in the form of columns for schemes of geometric beadving formats. Additional formatting options for this output have also been added.

Version 1.02.03 realised on January 8, 2021. Added the ability to remove and restore the beads of the scheme.

Version 1.02.02 realised on December 18, 2020. Added the ability to import images from a graphic file into the colors of the beads of the scheme. See the main menu item File \ Import picture colors.

Version 1.02.01 realised on October 20, 2020. Added the ability to create a word chart of the schemes of geometric formats in the form of a PDF document.

Version 1.01.01 realised on September 1, 2020. It implements the basic functions of creating beading schemes in classical and geometric formats.
