SolarCalc is a program for estimating the solar radiation and electrical energy yield in a given site around the world. The software has been written in Qt and uses the most recent models of solar radiation conversion by PV effects. The software can take into account many aspects of solar systems such as detailed diffuse/beam correlation models, temperature effects, and shadowing effects. The system allows you to build a user-based archive of components, like solar panels and inverters. Many printing and exporting functions are available, as well as ready-to-use PDF report export.
HashCatalog is a program that can find duplicate files in one or more folders or between two lists of one or more folders. HashCatalog supports a regular expression mask to select files to be evaluated for duplicates. HashCatalog will always recurse directories in search of files. HashCatalog can also create an XML file containing a listing of files, along with enough information to be able to determine duplicates. This XML file can be used to allow searches for duplicates against removable media. The catalog can be supplied to the list of search locations, along with individual files and folders. The hash methods supported are: MD5, SHA, SHA1, SHA256, SHA384, and SHA512.
The PushButton Engine is a Flash game engine and framework that's designed for a new generation of games. It makes it easy to bring together great existing libraries and components for building Flash games and makes it possible to spend less time on code and more time on building fun games.
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.
The Okapi project’s main purpose is to architect a set of building blocks for the creation of larger open source localization and translation tools. But many Okapi components are generic enough to be of interest to the text mining, natural language processing, and text retrieval communities. Okapi’s many text filters (HTML, Properties, XML (ITS XPath-based rules), OpenXML, ODF, Regex etc.) provide a straightforward way to access the text of multiple document formats. Its document events and pipeline can be made to integrate with other frameworks such as UIMA, LingPipe, OpenPipeline, OpenNLP, GATE, and Lucene. The advantage of Okapi’s text filters is that not only is text extracted, but all non-textual formatting is preserved. It is possible to decompose a document into events, process them via the pipeline, and then rebuild the input document without loss. Structural information can be added to Okapi document events so that tables, lists, links, titles etc. are grouped together and treated as a unit. This is useful when context based on a “universal” document structure is needed. The Okapi event model supports user configurable annotations, similar to UIMA, but simpler and more restricted in scope. User can annotate spans of text or add new resources such as translation memory matches, terminology, token types, or part of speech information.
HeeksCNC is a CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) add-on module for HeeksCAD. The user can add machining operations. These can then be output to NC code. The NC code is then shown as red and green lines on the screen. The NC code is generated using Python script, so it can be configured for different machines. HeeksCNC uses pycam for the "Zig Zag" operation, libarea for the "Pocket" operation, and libactp for the "Adaptive Roughing" operation.
Z88 is a fast, powerful, and compact finite elements analysis program. Z88 features 20 finite element types; it covers plane stress, plate bending, axial symmetric structures, and spacial structures up to 20-node Serendipity hexahedrons. It comes with a user-friendly interface (the Z88 Commander), and has a powerful mesh generator. It features a DXF coverter and two plot programs. The FEA solver is included, featuring an in-situ Cholesky solver along with the Jennings storage method. COSMOS and NASTRAN files from Pro/ENGINEER can be imported. Z88 is a project of the University of Bayreuth, Germany.
Nx2 is a somewhat complex Web application that acts as a frontend to music databases. Based on XUL, it runs in Gecko based browsers such as Firefox. Built on this idea is a client/server model where several Nx2 frontends can connect to each other, creating a way to link together databases on different networks.
