I have made this other thread How would you make this variable dots pattern in FF?
So I have been looking for this and I do not have the experience, knowledge or skills to make any kind of scripts to be able to do this so I decided to put here a compilation of the information I have found if it could help and be interesting and useful to someone
Compilation of Random Space Filling Tiling articles for FF Filters
The main and very useful and great link given by uberzev
Random space filling tiling of the plane
all the above examples shown comes from this website
Paul Bourke's "tiling of the plane" work was inspired by John Shier, a computer artist who integrates random numbers in his creations.
On page 5 of his Gallery you can find lots of examples showing Random Space Filling
Gallery 5 examples
AND is also very interesting this 10 Page article made in PDF from Paul Bourke and Jhon Shier explaining all this topic of Random Space Filling
Filling Space with Random Fractal Non-Overlapping Simple Shapes
Fr om the Processing Software website
Space Filling Algorithm
This has two interesting links to BOX FITTING APPLET
A region of space is filled through exhaustive placement of slowly expanding boxes
What is very interesting is that this is an working applet wh ere you can make your own BOX FITTING designs! Do not miss the opportunity to try it yourself
and with gradient colors
Another name for Space Filling can be Packing Algorithm
If I find more I will put it here

Please, Anyone could have any other information, link, software or way to do this WITHOUT having to program it, without scripting, or code it myself?
Or if someone else have done it already and is available to just use it in some way.
AND more important for me, that IS AVAILABLE for Windows 7, as I have seen one that is only for MacOS
I could use Photoshop or Illustrator in Windows 7 (if there could be possibly any plugin or addon)

Studio Artist 4.
It's a VERY VERY specific piece of feature you're looking for so it's mildly hard to find them especially at the level of power you're looking for. Just as a hint on looking for things like this, it could be achieved via various means as well. I tried using a physics engine to make circles spread and self-organize. It's pretty cool. Did that in Maya.
I sense you're desperate after seeing you've bumped 3 or 4 threads on the same matter. That's probably not the best of forum behaviors in general. Don't let your feelings run you doing that. One post should be enough for a question, otherwise it starts becoming ridiculous, like you're begging for attention. Not good. And hey, I do business with art and I can really say the same rules apply.

Thanks for your comment and suggestion of Studio Artist 4, I have tried and it seems that it could be possible to make but still I am not sure how to do it right as I am very beginner in this sofware and is a complex one to make special effects.
I am not desperate for this , but would like to be able to have a way to make this. Sorry to have bumped 3 or 4 threads about this, but they had different things, I will try to not make it if I can. Sorry for showing and seems and feeling that I am begging for this.
What various means?
What Physics engine?
and how to make the circles spread and self-organize?
Is this only in Maya? only as 3D ? and what about a 2D version that is not in a very expensive software?
Thanks very much for your help and your comments that are appreciated and right
