Range Software is software for finite element analysis (FEA) in engineering simulations. Its main features are support for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), heat transfer and radiation, linear stress-strain, electro-statics, acoustics, ground water flow, shape optimization, 3D mesh generation, an intuitive GUI, and import and export functionality. The Range Software package contains several tools which helps the user to setup, solve, and analyze the engineering problem.
pyFormex is a tool for generating, manipulating, and transforming large geometrical models of 3D structures by sequences of mathematical transformations. Thanks to a powerful (Python based) scripting language, it is very well suited for the automated design of spatial frame structures. It provides a wide range of operations on surface meshes, like STL type triangulated surfaces. There are provisions to import medical scan images. pyFormex can also be used as a pre- and post-processor for Finite Element analysis programs. Finally, it might be used just for creating some nice graphics.
