Product Details Supplier Info More products

CAD Schroer’s free Medusa4 Personal mechanical design software is being used by leather goods designer Bernhard Kreuzer to design high-quality, made-to-measure belts, handbags, custom sheathes for knives, mobile phone cases and archery accessories.

Medusa4 Personal is free for individuals and businesses. A pay-per-use e-services portal converts any final drawings for unlimited commercial use.

Kreuzer uses the software’s intelligent 2D drafting tools to design the separate pieces. Printed custom drawings serve as templates for cutting the leather. He then uses a hand-stitching method to create the final piece, often embossing the leather with special designs or initials.

He also uses Medusa4 Personal for designs in wood and metal and the software is helping to document an invention for which he is currently seeking a patent.
