MEDUSA4 Personal from CAD Schroer has been used by designers and small businesses. The new version 6.3 of the software delivers performance, the company says.
Free 2D and 3D CAD Software
MEDUSA4 Personal has been used to quickly create 2D drawings for home projects, and by hobbyists to produce 3D models ready for 3D printing. Due to its CAD functionality, and its ability to edit DWG and DXF files, the software has also become established in many small companies. When used by companies, finished drawings are published for commercial use for a small fee, e.g., converted to PDF or DXF format. This pay-per-result approach means that there is no cost to purchase the software, only for drawings that are used commercially.
New Version with Higher Performance
With version 6.3, the developer CAD Schroer has increased the performance of the software. For example, the graphics performance of MEDUSA4 Personal has been improved. This means improved handling and fluid presentation of large and complex 2D CAD drawings. By upgrading the software to 64-bit, this has enabled it to maximize capabilities of the latest 64-bit computer hardware.
With this software, users can include and process photos and images in 2D drawings. MEDUSA4 supports a variety of common image formats, and transparent images. This enables you to use photos, scans and sketches, together with regular CAD geometry and texts, to create a detailed CAD drawing.
Free for Private Use; Pay-Per-Result for Companies
The personal, non-commercial use of the MEDUSA4 Personal software is free of charge. The commercial use of the software is subject to the “pay per result” principle: Created drawings are unlocked for commercial use via the CSG eSERVICES portal. Companies do not pay for the software itself, only for the results achieved. The Pay-Per-Result principle means that finished drawings are converted to PDF or DXF format for a small fee, ready for commercial use.
