Creating complex seamless patterns in Illustrator can be a daunting task. If you have ever tried to create a perfect seamless pattern in Illustrator you probably know the obstacles that you will face. Ensuring that your tiles line up perfectly is usually the most difficult part of pattern creation and unless you have help, it’s usually up to you to use trial and error to make sure everything aligns properly.

is a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator that enables you to create seamless patterns quickly and in most cases effortlessly. I use this plug-in quite often and am just about always amazed with the results. Patterns that may have taken hours to create can now be made instantly. Simply draw a shape, click make, adjust the bounding box, and you have a pattern that you can use in your design.
