Rosace guitar is a  program to help develop rosettes for acoustic guitar used in the field of guitar making. It works on Linux, Window and MacOsx. It is available in French and English languages
It is OpenSource under the LGPL license, however if you want to help with its development you can help.


A rosette is made up with different patterns that can be selected to copy, duplicate, delete or move.
Here the display is rendered completely which requires a powerful computer


Here the display is quickly rendered by pressing the quick display checkbox button.



By selecting the Pattern tab, you can modify an elementary pattern point by point, or by row, by column or by color selection. See the documentation available in the software help.


You can print the rosette with its needs in nets of different essences.
