ARS (Autonomous Robot Simulator) is a physically-accurate simulation suite for research and development of mobile manipulators and, in general, any multi-body system. It is modular, easy to learn and use, and can be a valuable tool in the process of robot design, in the development of control and reasoning algorithms, and in teaching and educational activities. It will encompass a wide range of tools spanning from kinematics and dynamics simulation to robot interfacing and control.
PyCAM generates toolpaths (GCode) for CNC machines out of 3D STL model files or 2D gravure contour files (SVG or DXF). The output of PyCAM can be imported into EMC2 or other machine controllers to direct the milling machine. PyCAM features different path generation strategies, cutter shapes, and post-processing options.
openDarkEngine is a from-scratch rewrite of the famous Dark Engine originally written by Looking Glass Studios. The engine was used in the Thief 1, Thief Gold, Thief 2, and System Shock 2 games. This rewrite is targeted at newer machines and should improve compatibility and give the games (and all the fan made material) a never ending life. It should also allow manipulation of the original data files.
