    You need a carbon fiber fill or you want to draw it?

    Why would you not just use Corel PhotoPaint (included with Corel Suite)? It is the Corel equivalent of Photoshop. Or you could purchase professionally prepared versions ... Express Clipart Carbon Fiber high resolution seamless tiles.

    I just purchased from Fred his seamless tile at the above link. I printed it on our SolJet and did a pool table wrap. His file looks great. Worth the few dollars spent and time save creating it from scratch.

    Fred- I like your carbonfiber pattern- except for the diagonal highlight which
    I think would look odd when tiled. Any way to get them without the highlight?
    Maybe 006, 007, or 008 if possible. Thanks Gene

    Gene ... every other one in the series is the same but without the highlight. The odd numbers are without and the even numbers with the highlight. I don't care for the highlight either as it gets repetitive looking very quickly. What I do is to overlay the highlight separately in Photoshop after all my tiles are in place and then stretch it to cover the entire image. It looks much better that way.

    We provide these images free for your use. Here's a link.

    I've been looking for a carbon fiber fill too, other than the shades, and highlites, are the patterns the same on all of them? I can't tell on this old crappy monitor.

    Yes, the only difference is the color.
