Picogen is a program to create, design, and render artificial 3D terrain scenes. It is currently not very nice to non-programming-end-users, as the heightmap definition is a program with a LISP-like syntax. It aims to be similar to the Terragen program and provide a free and unrestricted alternative to it.
Vis/Space is a client-server system for visually exploring data structures in 3D virtual space. It allows the placement of various data sources in a three-dimensional environment. Custom search terms can be entered into a query field, or can be navigated to and from an existing object. All objects like images and "text screens" can be moved around. A single click on an image shows the full-resolution version in the foreground. Whole collections of images can be moved. A click to the cube also toggles among several different possible layouts. Data sources include search engines, microblogging, Wikipedia, image/video search, and 4chan.
The Structural Proteomics Application Development Environment (SPADE) provides a community suite for developing and sharing protein structure and sequence tools. It includes a custom molecular viewer, sequence alignment editor, many reusable tools, and a chemical probing suite to support experimental verification of predicted structural models.
NeoTextureEdit is an easy to use graph-based procedural seamless texture editor. NeoTexture is the associated run-time generation library. Using continuous basis functions, it can generate arbitrary resolution images without quality degradation. Its main purpose is to produce high-quality textures for real time rendering applications that can be stored in a few kB and synthesized on application startup. But it can also be used to generate off-line images.
Reindeer is a C library for the rendering of virtual scenes, mainly in three dimensions. The library dynamically loads backend modules to do the rendering. Currently there is only a backend for OpenGL, but ideas for future backends are a raytracer and perhaps Direct3D. Any number of rendering contexts can live at the same time. Contexts are tied to a backend, and backends are automatically loaded and unloaded on demand. Resources are defined globally and can be used by any number of contexts at the same time, even in different backends. The main goal is to make it easier for developers to write applications that have many rendering contexts with shared resources and automatic state management. Another advantage is that the user can choose in which way a scene should be rendered without recompiling the application. For example, a scene could be rendered with a rasterizer like OpenGL at one point, and with a raytracer at another. Reindeer can also be used to get portable graphics output. Reindeer is not a scene-graph library or a game engine, but it can be used to implement them. It's still up to the application to create and manage the native contexts that the Reindeer backends can work on. For example, an application would still need to use GLX or equivalent to be able to use the OpenGL backend. The Reindeer project also provides a package called GTK-Reindeer that makes this easier for developers of GTK+ applications.
Kobldes makes it possible for the designer to model building information and uses POV-Ray for visualization. It is also programmed using the POV-Ray screen description language (SDL). The goal of is to create a fully functioning building information modeling and management tool for designing buildings. It currently allows the designer to accomplish basic tasks with building components such as building levels and spaces in the process of solving design problems. In the near future, it will compute and make available information about the building such as sizes/volumes (such as an area for painting in a particular room), requirement checks (e.g. spatial conformance), and Property checks (e.g. calculating the solar savings factor).
Aspose.Report is a .NET query building and charting control. It allows developers to quickly add ad hoc capabilities to their .NET applications as well as create 21 popular chart types with some stylish effects like 3D rendering, transparency, gradients, and anti-aliasing. Simply drag and drop the Aspose.Report component on Web or Win form, assign a DataTable object as data source, and abstract a variety of outputs including SQL, Select, Where, and Order By statements and many more.
MakeHuman is software for the modelling of three-dimensional humanoid characters. Features that make this software unique include a highly intuitive GUI and a high quality mesh, optimized to work in subdivision surface mode (for example, Zbrush). Using MakeHuman, a photo-realistic character can be modelled in less than 2 minutes.
