Drawing Off-ICE

Sinclair QL Drawing Off-ICE by Eidersoft

Drawing Off-ICE (also known as ICE 3D Designer) is an enhanced drawing program which contains various small program parts to create text and graphics in 2D and 3D, and then overlay them to create an image.

It requires the ICE pointer environment complete with Mouse.

The program includes the following tools to help produce the parts of a page, which are then overlaid on top of each other to create the page:

  • 3D Graphics program - able to draw 3D blocks, triangles and lenses, with a user defined viewpoint and in solid / wireframe graphics.
  • 2D Graphics program - able to draw line, arc, circles/ellipses, rectangles and triangles
  • 3D Arc program - able to draw arcs in simulated 3 Dimensions.
  • Char-Block - a program to allow you to layout text within a user defined rectangle. You can use this to enter user defined characters into the block also.
  • A text editor - this allows you to enter text in a variety of fonts, including using shadowed fonts and 3 Dimensional fonts (supplied).
  • A bitmap graphics program (ArtICE)
  • Printer output to Cannon / Taxan / Epson compatible printers.

The manual appears as a Quill DOC on the disk.
