Excentro 1.9.8 – Create guilloche illustration designs.

Excentro 1.9.8Excentro is an easy-to-use yet advanced tool that can create guilloche designs such as backgrounds, borders, or rosettes. 

The guilloches are vintage design elements that were frequently used for anti-counterfeiting security purposes on banknotes, passports, checks, and certificates over the past two hundred years. As the times changed and digital copy and printing technologies were perfected, guilloches no longer presented sufficient security measures that could prevent the forging and counterfeiting of valuable papers. Today the main part of security technology lies in the special paper or tricky inks used in printing. 

Still, it is too early to say that the days of guilloche designs are over. They can still be used to prevent the counterfeiting of products that do not require the highest level of security (e.g., theater tickets, diplomas, or gift certificates). Or, they can just be used to decorate and add some aesthetic value to a product giving it a ‘money-like’ look and value.

What’s New

Version 1.9.8:

  • Several fixes for user reported issues
  • Two new objects for basic text handling: "Text String" and "Text on Curve". These objects could be used to add simple text elements to document's design. (Implementation of the feature still needs fine-tuning, no documentation is provided yet. Please, feel free to send comments or ask questions.)
  • New "Image Group" object that allows you to wrap paths of other objects (including new text objects) into a group that will be used with bas-relief generation effect
