ImgView is a simple image viewer for Unix-like systems. It is free from menus and other GUI gadgets, and controlled primarily by the keyboard. It supports the following image file formats: XBM, PBM/PGM/PPM, GIF, JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and PCX. It supports RGB, Gray, and CMYK ICC profiles in JPEG, RGB and Gray ICC profiles in TIFF and PNG, and RGB ICC profiles in GIF.
StabieDraw is a simple 2D vector drawing program for creating illustrations in PDF format. The program is based on an IC layout editor and the interface will probably be most familiar to people in the IC industry. It has a Tcl interface for creating and modifying the shape objects as well as a traditional interactive GUI, though it is almost required to put the window manager into focus follows mouse mode to use this program. Objects include rectangles, paths, polygons, circles, donuts, references, and programmable objects.
view3dscene is a browser for VRML (1.0 and 2.0) and X3D, and a viewer for other 3D model formats (3DS, MD3, Wavefront OBJ, and Collada are handled). It supports viewing the scene in the "Examine" mode and walking in the virtual world with features such as collision detection and gravity. Rendering is done using OpenGL. Many advanced 3D graphic effects are available, like mirrors (flat and through cube environment mapping), shadows (shadow maps and shadow volumes), GLSL shaders and more. The program can also convert files from 3DS, MD3, Collada and other formats to X3D and pretty-print VRML and X3D files.
FidoCadJ is a very easy-to-use editor, with a library of electrical symbols and footprints (through hole and SMD). Drawings can be exported in several graphic formats (PDF, EPS, PGF for LaTeX, SVG, PNG, and JPEG). Although very simple and not relying on any netlist concept, FidoCadJ can be considered a basic electronic design automation program. FidoCadJ uses a file format containing only UTF-8 text, which is very compact and suited for copying and pasting with newsgroups and forum messages. This determined its success, as it is quite versatile for simple mechanical drawings as well as for electronics.
Blender is a free 3D animation studio. It includes tools for modeling, sculpting, texturing (painting, node-based shader materials, or UV mapped), UV mapping, rigging and constraints, weight painting, particle systems, simulation (fluids, physics, and soft body dynamics and an external crowd simulator), rendering, node-based compositing, and non linear video editing, as well as an integrated game engine for real-time interactive 3D, and game creation and playback with cross-platform compatibility.
