Bist stands for "bidimensional structures" and is a chemical drawing tool. It is focused on organic chemistry, but it may be useful for chemists or teachers as well. Bist support many of the formalisms used to describe molecular structures like single bond, double bond, stereospecific bond, charges, resonance arrows, lone pairs, and so on. It can export both PostScript and PNG formats.
HeeksCAD is a CAD application. It can import solid models from STEP and IGES files, draw construction geometry and lines and arcs, create new primitive solids, or make solids by extruding a sketch or by making a lofted solid between sketches. Solids can be modified using blending or boolean operations. Models can be saved as IGES, STEP, and STL. The 2D geometry can be plotted with a printer or to HPGL. DXF files can be imported and exported; lines, arcs, spline, ellipses, and polylines are supported. SVG import has similar capabilities. It is possible to make Add-In modules. The HeeksCNC project provides a CAM add-in, and HeeksPython provides a Python console.
KBoincSpy is a KDE monitor and control utility for the BOINC distributed client. It displays a lot of useful information about the computation of work units, such as the percent of work done, estimates of the completion time, and credits granted. For some projects, it also reports interesting data about the content and signifiance of each work unit being analyzed. Through KDE's IO mechanism, KBoincSpy is able to monitor remote BOINC clients, and its plugin-based architecture offers support for a virtually unlimited number of projects.
X-Plane is a flight simulator that reads in the geometric shape of any aircraft and then figures out how that aircraft will fly. It does this via an engineering process called "blade element theory", which involves breaking the aircraft down into many small elements and then finding the forces on each little element many times per second. These forces are then converted into accelerations, which are then integrated to velocities and positions. This gives X-Plane the most realistic flight model available for personal computers.
