Maze Making Software

Overview

This software creates mazes of different sizes and configurable appearance. It is designed for teachers and makers. It can save the output as printable sheets or bitmap images.

[updated terms]

  • This software is provided free to use for all commercial / non-commercial / educational, puzzle publication purposes.
  • It is free, but the product is not in the public domain, the code is (c) Dr Warren Creemers (2016)
  • You may not sell this software, or offer it for download elsewhere.

[how to show appreciation]

  • I super appreciate getting some credit for the work, especially if you are printing a book of puzzles. Something like “puzzles created using Maze Maker software, by Dr Warren Creemers”.
  • If you make something cool with it, I would love to see a photo/link.
  • If you make a kids book or something like that, I’d really get a kick out of getting a free copy. Gestures like that make my day 🙂

Limitations:

  • Beta software (minor bugs to iron out, but quite usable)
  • Smooth edges when wall width is set to 1 are buggy.
  • Even line widths produce a better output.

What is done:

  • Generates a valid maze.
  • Appearance is configurable.
  • Maze size is configurable.
  • Printing is enabled (adjust blockSize to alter print output size)
  • Zooming in, moving etc (few minor bugs still).
  • Support for DPI / block size.

Next Release

  • Bug fixes
  • Support for graphical inserts
  • Ascii output

Road Map

  • Will probably combine this with other software I have written to create a puzzle creation suite.

Update:

I have tentatively started working (April 2019) on a online version of this software, to be open sourced.
