The Shadows program from Francois Blateyron is a utility that can be used to design custom sundials and astrolabes. Shadows provides the user with the drawing tools needed for the process, as well as with general templates that can be customized further once the user has selected the sundial type he wants. From plane sundials to Mitchnik sundials, the program is capable of creating most sundial possibilities and will also generate a 1:1 printout of the finished design that the user can transfer or reproduce on the material he wants to use for the actual product.
Customizations on the software include provisions for precise locations: more than 3,600 cities around the globe have their data preloaded into the software for easy design localization. Users are also capable of seeing a virtual simulation of what their sundial will look like once in use: a virtual shadow can be simulated on the software. The program is also available in at least 14 localizations for the actual user interface. The basic version of the software is available for free, but the Expert and Pro versions are paid applications.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about which types of files Shadows can process, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
