gEDA is a suite of electronic design automation (EDA) tools. Currently, the project offers a mature suite of free software applications for electronics design, including schematic capture, attribute management, bill of materials (BOM) generation, netlisting into over 20 netlist formats, analog and digital simulation, and printed circuit board (PCB) layout.
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.
OpenCSG is a library that does image-based CSG rendering using OpenGL. CSG is short for "constructive solid geometry" and represents a modeling technique for composing shapes with 3D-primitives which are combined using volumetric boolean operations. Image-based CSG rendering means rendering CSG shapes without calculating their surface in object-space. Instead, the image of a CSG shape is composed directly in the frame-buffer of the graphics hardware by rather sophisticated stenciling and z-buffer operations.
pythonOCC is a 3D CAD/PLM development library for the Python programming language. It provides 3D hybrid modeling, data exchange (support for the STEP/IGES file format), GUI management support (wxPython, PyQt, python-xlib), parametric modeling, and advanced meshing features. pythonOCC is built upon the OpenCASCADE 3D modeling kernel and the salomegeom and salomesmesh packages. Some high level packages (for parametric modeling, topology, data exchange, webservices, etc.) extend the builtin features of those libraries to enable highly dynamic and modular programming of any CAD application.
CADauno is a 3D modeling tool based on the NURBS surfaces. It aims to exploit the power of NURBS at representing free forms. It provides an interpolation facility ("skinning" technique), which enables the designer to create a closed surface passing through different section curves. This makes it possible, as an example, to build a human body 3D model starting from sections provided by a Computed Axial Tomography scanner.
OSG composer was designed to unleash the potential of OSG developers and users. It facilitates the creation of simple to complex 3D scenes, which combine geometries from different sources. It lets you add models from different sources, place them visually using the draggers, use advanced Snap tools, add 3D text to your scene, add texture coordinates to the models, duplicate and create instances of geometries in the scene, automatically pack your scenes with all its textures in a zip file so you can share it with other users, and fix problematic models and bring them back to life.
