SoC GDS is a platform for enabling hierarchical SoC integration and verification across traditional EDA frameworks based on Virtual Components per the VSIA guidelines. It is also a fast viewer and processor for native GDSII files. It encompasses a set of powerful functions allowing automatic cell renaming, grid verifications, GDS II files merging (AND), physical comparison (XOR), hierarchy modifications, and conversion to text format.
RPhoto is a handy image editor to simplify cropping of digital camera pictures and avoid white borders introduced by incorrect height/width ratios. It also has lossless rotate and flip features, as well as a unique way to rectify a bad angle by only drawing a horizontal or vertical line.
wxFreeChart is powerful charting library based on wxWidgets. It is designed with flexibility in mind, and supports many types of charts with many different configurations. These include line/histogram charts base on x/y coordinates, bar charts (vertical or horizontal), stacked bar charts, layered bar charts, OHLC financial charts (bars or candlesticks), pie charts, bubble charts, and Gantt charts.
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.
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.
