In this category we are going to publish illustrations that are suitable for conversion into vector or 2D CAD form.
All vector illustrations published here are traced by hand in a vector or 2D CAD software, since in our work we do not use any automatic trace tools found in some of the vector software. In addition to 2D CAD (dwg) file formats, vector file formats (eps and svg) will also be available for download. To modify these illustrations you will need vector editing (Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, CorelDraw...) or 2D CAD software (AutoCAD, NanoCAD, QCAD, Solid edge 2D Drafting...).
You will be offered different kinds of illustrations on different themes, mainly taken from old books and representing a variety of world-famous artworks, posters and the like. In a word, you will be presented with illustrations whose beauty deserves to be kept from oblivion as they would otherwise remain forgotten on the pages of old books.
By converting these illustrations in vector or CAD geometry you obtain a large number of options, such as:
- editing and modifying of the illustration
- the illustration can be quickly painted as desired
- it can be enlarged without loss of resolution
- it can be printed or used in a variety of modern CNC machines (laser cutter, waterjet cutter, plasma cutter...).
We hope you appreciate the hard work we put into hand tracing and will therefore use these illustrations by following the rules stated in the license.
