Wood grain patterns are used as a design element of artificial things because they give impressions such as "peacefulness" and "composure". Although fundamental utilization of wood grain patterns is to process natural material as a product, it is not advantageous in respect of cost. In order to easily and cheaply use wood grain patterns, printing technique is then adopted. However, there is a problem that it is difficult to design wood grain patterns with impressions of customer's demands. In this research, in order to generate/design wood grain patterns according to a customer's demands, a design method of the wood grain patterns with required impressions is proposed. A basic system based on the proposal method was developed, and the usefulness is verified by evaluation experiments.
