Rebuild design workflow with Fabrie AI

We all need to visualise what we are thinking quickly when it comes to storyboarding, capturing emotions and communicating results with clients, and you can let Fabrie AI do that for you! The generative AI creates text-generated images and topic rewriting is now available on Fabrie, along with image OCR and background removal to help designers quickly translate their thoughts into the desired visuals, helping ideas to spread and get off the ground.

💡 The Fabrie AI feature is still in beta, click here to join our community to get access and discussion!

Fabrie Imagine (Beta)



Powered by Stable Diffusion and ControlNet

Want to easily get inspiration, quickly render, and iterate design plans on a whiteboard? Let an Fabrie Imagine help! Just select a preset scene template, add color, material, and background details to generate a good design rendering. In the future, more industry-specific scene templates will be continuously added, and feedback and suggestions are welcome. Additionally, the Fabrie Imagine provides a line drawing mode and image mode, where you can select existing images or design drafts and directly generate a rendering. You just need to focus on the ideas, and let AI take care of the rest!

Community cases





If you don't know where to start, community cases can be a good source of inspiration. Currently, AI design assistants focus on high-frequency use cases in the fashion and industrial design industries, providing pre-tested and available AI generation, and will continue to update to meet various needs. Style model examples are as follows:

Of course, you can also experiment and explore on your own. Here are some suggested exploration scenarios that are currently recommended:

Scenarios:
Clothing design: hoodie, dress, coat, suit, t shirt, shirt, pants;
Product design: glass;
More industries coming soon.
Color:
enter a custom color in prompt, such as blue, yellow, red;
Material:
Clothing: input custom materials in English, such as Chiffon.
Product: input custom materials in English, such as diamond.
Background:
custom color like black and white;
Design style:
Using well known brands or genres;
Custom details:
Add preferred details,such as 1 pocket, v neck, cyber punk style;

Advanced settings(Optional):



For skilled AI players only, do not adjust configuration unless necessary.

SettingsNote
Negative promptUsing negative prompts can improve the quality of generated images by specifying concepts such as 'blurry' and 'pixelated'. Negative prompts can also be used to remove unwanted elements from the images, such as text, watermarks, or people.
SamplerStable Diffusion has different types of samplers, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Some are suitable for generating high-detail images while others are better for creating specific styles, such as anime or cartoons. Popular samplers and features include: - DDIM: Known for generating highly detailed and realistic images. - MCMC: Better for creating a certain style of image, such as anime or - cartoons. - Euler: The simplest sampler, suitable for generating basic images.
Control modeControlling the generated results emphasizes either the prompt words or the image itself.
StepsMore steps generate more details in the image.
Prompt strengthReferring to CFG value, it determines how closely the image matches the prompt word. Different CFG values can be tried to observe their impact on the generated image. Higher CFG values generate images closer to the text prompt, while lower CFG values produce more creative and imaginative images. The default is usually 7, with common values being: 1 - Highly creative and unexpected. 3 - Creative, but somewhat similar to the text prompt. 7 - Balanced between creativity and following the prompt. 15 - Very close to the text prompt. 30 - Almost identical to the text prompt.
SeedUsing the same seed and prompt will always generate the same image, making the seed a useful method for reproducing images or trying different settings. Seeds can also be shared to generate the same image.
Control rangeIt determines reference image control timing, e.g. 50%~100% means first half not controlled by reference.


Visualize



Visualize mode1️⃣: Sketch



Do you have a design sketch that you just came up with? Try uploading it to the whiteboard and use the AI design assistant to generate a design rendering! You can even use the whiteboard's drawing tools to sketch out an idea (or annotate and supplement existing sketches or images), and then hand the new sketch over to the AI design assistant to easily explore design options!



Visualization mode2️⃣: Concept Model



Upload existing concept model images (such as product models, architectural models) and let the AI design assistant help you with one-click rendering, which is a great way to explore and communicate design concepts.



Visualization mode3️⃣: Image



Upload existing design images (such as product design example or concept art), and use AI design assistants to generate more styles and effects of design images. This is very suitable for brainstorming or exploring new design series.



Refine



Refine in Fabrie Imagine is a powerful new mode that allows you to edit images using artificial intelligence, specifically designed to improve your design workflow.

To use Fabrie Imagine Refine, simply mark the area of the image that you want to edit with a pencil, and then describe the expected results in prompts. Fabrie AI will then use its AI to generate new image content to fill in the marked area.



Fabrie AI Refine is perfect for a variety of design tasks, such as:

Visualizing ideas
Iterating on designs
Removing unwanted objects
Changing the background
Adding new elements

Fabrie AI Refine is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that can help you to improve your design workflow in a variety of ways. Try it today and see how it can help you to create better designs faster.

Fabrie AI feature 1️⃣: Text to Image



Powered by Stable Diffusion

I'm sure many of you have had a wild imagination, an idea in your head, but you can't draw to express it, so you're left in the dark. The Fabrie whiteboard, with its integrated AI drawing generation tool, can remedy this.

Enter any text on the whiteboard (a quote or keyword on a sticky note, text box or text with a basic shapes), right-click on the menu and select 'Generate images', then wait for a moment and the image matching the keyword description will be generated automatically.



As you can see, the text-to-image function visualises the ideas in your head and is perfect for designers to conceive and express their creativity in exploring inspiration, creating mood boards or even planning design solutions, enabling an efficient balance between creativity and imagination!

💡 How to generate better images with AI?

Fabrie AI feature 3️⃣: image background removal



Powered by Ali Cloud

In our daily design collaboration, we need to collect a lot of images, and in order to deliver better layout, we often need to key the images and remove the background, which is a repetitive task. Instead of relying on tools like Photoshop, just upload your images to the whiteboard and use the "AI Toolbox (Beta)" - Remove background to automatically remove the background from your images!



The image types supported by this function include jpg, png, and extracted images from ps, ai, pdf, and office files.

Fabrie AI feature 4️⃣: image OCR



Powered by Ali Cloud

After uploading screenshots and inspirational material to the whiteboard, we would like to use the text content in the image, but we often need to manually recognize and input the text. No need to rely on scanning software, just upload the image to the whiteboard and use the "AI Toolbox (Beta)" - Recognize text (OCR) to extract the text from the image easily!



Table AI



Behold, you can use AI to generate tables in seconds right now!

Perfect for:

Designer: Use AI to collect background information in tables, analyze competitive data, integrate user needs and industry trends, and provide information support for subsequent design.

Product Manager: Use table AI to automatically generate document structure, quickly fill in key information, and improve document writing efficiency.

Game Engineer: Use table AI to establish numerical models and accelerate the construction of game system architecture.

Project Manager: Utilize table AI intelligent analysis to track team progress, create planning tables to predict risks, and ensure the project is completed on time.
