CAD Schroer Group (CSG), the global engineering solutions provider, today announced the release of version 3.1 of its renowned MEDUSA4 Design Automation Suite. Version 3.1 introduces many new productivity tools, especially in the areas of drafting, 3D and plant design, along with a long list of improvements and enhancements.

"Our customers will be especially interested in further enhancements in our excellent 3D interfaces, including 3D DXF and colour support for STEP files, along with new options for controlling the display and import of layers, names, and attributes," explains MEDUSA4 Product Manager Mark Simpson. "Our Plant Design Application, MPDS4, sees the introduction of a brand new module called MPDS4 MECHANICAL HANDLING(TM) , allowing easy placement and intelligent connection of interconnected components. From conveyor belts to cranes to fork lift trucks, installation designers can now easily select, lay out, configure, visualise and add intelligence to process machinery in their plant. This is a great addition to the MPDS4 FACTORY LAYOUT(TM) solution, which now allows users to place equipment in any 3D plane, and quickly achieve impressive 3D visualisations of installations based on fast 2D layouts. Another important hightlight is the new 3D COMPONENT DESIGNER for easy creation of custom 3D components."
