Hey, I found this awesome program and it’s amazing. But it seems to good to be true. I can’t find any ads, or github or anything. I can’t even find a premium. How do you make money? Is it a hobby project?
Basically, from what I have been told, the rendering engine is licensed for use in laser cutting hardware/software I believe. In doing so, this enable the electron based app which we all know as Gravit Designer to remain free since the people who use the rendering engine pay to obtain a license just as you pay to renew or receive your drivers license.
Hope these links help as they answer your question a bit better than I can.
Welcome to our forum, @CamCK.
It’s exactly like Toni89 said, we are licensing our rendering engine to other companies (not just laser-cutting, though), which allows us to keep Gravit Designer totally free. For the future, we’re also planning on a paid Marketplace and a paid Pro version, which will help us to keep the lights on.
