Shadow Analyzer is an advanced parametric CAD tool for professionals in the area of Solar Energy Engineering and Architecture. Unlike most of other 3D tools, Shadow Analyzer displays not only objects themselves, but also the shadows they cast.
Shadow Analyzer is an ideal tool for the analysis of the shadow effects of any new projects or in the case of in-place installation of solar energy equipment. It allows to analyze shadows from external objects as well as the self-shadowing of static or sun-tracking solar collector systems during a day in several seasons of the year, on any geographical latitude.
Shadow Analyzer not only visualizes shadows in 3D views for the express visual evaluations of the shadowing, but also shows additional windows for the calculations of the corresponding energy losses.
For architects, Shadow Analyzer is an easy method by which to evaluate the natural-light environment in an inter-building space.
The parametric CAD features of Shadow Analyzer allows you to compose scenes, populate them with objects, change object dimensions, location, orientation, colors, and reflectivities. You can also apply textures to objects' surfaces. After all these transformations, you can save scenes in (.sa1) files.
Shadow Analyzer is a stand-alone tool. It does not depend on any other applications or any third-party packages.

IMPORTANT - READ CAREFULLY
This license statement and limited warranty constitutes a legal agreement ("License Agreement") between you ("Licensee", either as an individual or a single entity) and Dr. Baum Research e.K. ("Vendor") for the software product Shadow Analyzer ("Software").
BY INSTALLING, COPYING, OR OTHERWISE USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE LICENSE AGREEMENT.
Upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of the License Agreement, Dr. Baum Research e.K. grants you the right to use the Software in the manner provided below.
If you do not accept the terms and conditions of the License Agreement, you are to promptly delete each and any copy of the Software from your computer(s).
The Vendor reserves the right to license the same Software to other individuals or entities under a different license agreement.
After accepting this license agreement, the Licensee is permitted to use the Software under the terms of this agreement.
For the evaluation purposes only, the Vendor provides a special free trial version of the Software (Shadow Analyzer Trial) that can be freely downloaded from the Vendor's web site.
If the Licensee wishes to use the Software, the Licensee must purchase a single user license or a multi-user license from the Vendor. This license bears the name of the licensed person or entity and is not transferable to any other party. Pricing and availability is subject to change without prior notice. The Licensee can consult the most recent pricing information at the Vendor's web site.
If a single user license was bought, the Licensee has the option of installing the Software on a single machine possibly used by one or more persons, or installing the Software on several machines used exclusively by a single person. Any combination of both options, or installing the Software on a network server, is not permitted.
If a multi-user license was bought, the Licensee may choose to install the Software on as many machines as licenses were bought, but no more, or the Licensee may choose to install the Software on one or more network servers on the condition that the number of client machines that have access to that server or those servers, is equal to or less than the number of licenses bought. When the number of client machines grows, the Licensee must buy additional licenses.
Regardless of the number of licenses bought, the Licensee has right to place an additional copy of the Software on a removable medium for backup purposes to protect the investment made.
Technical support is available directly from the Vendor at no additional charge. When encountering problems, the Licensee must first visit the Vendor's web site and read the information presented there to make sure the question or problem is not already answered there. If not, the licensee may write to Vendor with his/her question in either the English or German language.
The Software is provided "as is". In no event shall the Vendor or any of his affiliates be liable for any consequential, special, incidental or indirect damages of any kind arising out of the delivery, performance or use of this Software, to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law. While the Software has been developed with great care, it is not possible to warrant that the Software is error free. The Software is not designed or intended to be used in any activity that may cause personal injury, death or any other severe damage or loss.
When errors are found in the Software, the Vendor will release a new version of the Software that no longer contains those errors a reasonable amount of time after the Vendor is given an accurate description of those errors. Which amount of time is reasonable will depend on the complexity and severity of the errors. The Vendor will mention the release at the Vendor's web site and, at the Vendor's option, directly contact the Licensee to announce the new release. The Licensee can then, at their option, upgrade to the latest version or to continue to use the older version the Licensee already has. In either case, no payment to the Vendor is required. In the latter case, the Licensee will no longer be entitled to technical support until the Licensee has upgraded to the latest version.
The Vendor reserves the right to charge an upgrade fee in the case of major new enhancements or additions to the Software. This major new version will then start a new version line which will use version numbers clearly distinguishable from the old version line. The Licensee has no obligation to upgrade to the new version line and the Vendor will continue to make available the latest version of the previous version line and release new versions in the old version line in the case errors are still found, and provide technical support for it.
You must not attempt to reverse compile, modify, translate or disassemble the Software in whole or in part. You must not run the Software under a debugger or similar tool allowing you to inspect the inner workings of the Software.
The Software remains the exclusive property of the Vendor. Any Licensee which fully complies with the terms in this license agreement may use it according to the terms of this license agreement.
