Gmsh is an automatic 3D finite element grid generator with built-in CAD and post-processing facilities. Its design goal is to provide a simple meshing tool with parametric input and advanced visualization capabilities. It is built around four modules: geometry, mesh, solver, and post-processing. The specification of any input to these modules is done either interactively using the graphical user interface (based on FLTK and OpenGL) or in ASCII text files using Gmsh's own scripting language.
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).
OCE (OpenCascade Community Edition) is a community version of the OpenCascade Technology 3D kernel, a C++ library for 3D CAD development. It includes components for 3D surface and solid BRep modeling, visualization, data exchange (STEP, IGES), and rapid application development. OCE aims to fix bugs and improve code quality and portability.
gCAD3D is a 3D CAD-CAM application which features an integrated 3D OpenGL viewer, a program interpreter for geometry and NC-commands in 3D, and a programming interface for user programs. It has support for importing Step files and support for both importing and exporting Iges, DXF, and VRML files.
