GraphCalc is a very gui graphing calculator. It has been called a good replacement for a TI-85. It is a must for any high school math student.
First-person 3D building and elevator simulator
Skyscraper is a fully featured first-person 3D virtual building simulator, written in C++ and using the OGRE graphics engine (previous versions used Crystal Space). It's flagship feature is an elaborate and realistic elevator simulator.
Structure Synth generates 3D structures by specifying a design grammar. Even simple systems may generate surprising and complex structures. Structure Synth offers a graphical environment with multiple tabs, syntax highlighting, and OpenGL preview.
Sailcut CAD is a sail design and plotting software. It allows you to design and visualise your own sail and compute the accurate development of all panels in flat sheets.
ngPlant is a plant modeling software package. ngPlant interactive tool can be used to create 3D models of different plants and trees. ngPlant software libraries can be used by developers in their 3D applications, or plant modeling plugins.
CsGL is OpenGL for the .Net Framework, providing support for OpenGL 1.1 - 1.4 and numerous extensions.
Converts a raw digitized polygon mesh to a clean mesh where all the occurrences of a specific set of "defects" are corrected. Holes, self-intersections, degenerate and non-manifold elements are all replaced with valid configurations.
Geoblock is a program for 3D modeling, database management and visualization of geoscience datasets. It is developed for mineral deposit exploration, ore reserve estimation, mine planning and simulating geotechnical processes in mine sites.
This is a C++ program which includes OpenGL library glut.h. By the program you are able to draw 6 different 3D functions. Program also has OpenGL functions that provides you to rotate the graphics.
Converts between many 3D data formats
IVCon-TL can read and write a variety of 3D graphics file formats, converting from one to the other. Supported formats include 3DS, ASE, BYU, DXF, GMOD, HRC, IV, OBJ, OFF, POV, SMF, STL/STLA/STLB, TEC, TRI/TRIA/TRIB, UCD, VLA, WRL/VRML, XGL and more.
surfit is an open source and free gridding and contouring software. surfit can do interpolation/approximation of points, contours and surfaces, can take fault lines and trend surfaces into account, can use inequalities and other conditions. Supports a lo
This is a 3D editor, which can graphically edit VRML and other 3D formats. It is also intended to provide a platform which can be used to experiment with physics, animation, etc. Programming work on this project has lapsed.
The 3D Toolkit provides algorithms and methods to process 3D point clouds. In includes automatic precise registration (6D simultaneous localization and mapping, 6D SLAM) and other tools, e.g., a fast 3D viewer, plane extraction software, etc.
RawKee: an Open Source X3D File Format Plug-in for Alias' Maya 3D Authoring Software.
Ayam is a free 3D modelling environment for the RenderMan interface.
EStereo is a computer vision C++ library for real-time disparity estimation. It computes dense stereo matching from 2 or 3 images as well as 3D scene reconstruction. The library also comes with a GUI-based application (StereoPlus).
Model of the Solar System
The Solar Model is real time modeling of solar system. It allows user to navigate in space, to control time counting (speed-up time flow) and estimate movement of space bodies, bind camera to space objects (for example, from Moon on Earth in real time).
This Plug-in for discreet 3dsmax adds the ability to export the SOFTIMAGE/Avid dotXSI file format. For import capability, visit www.softimage.com/connect.
Alliance Productions was started in early 2000 by Kazan as a publishng name for his utilities and campaign for FreeSpace 2. Now it has evolved into the publishing name for all projects started by him.
Freecloth is a free, open-source cloth simulation tool for use in cloth simulation research, and to help in production of feature films or games using cloth. The idea is similar to Maya Cloth: a tool to create clothing for digital characters.
3D rendering and scene graph library
High-level 3D graphics library. Supports retained and immediate mode rendering, an extensible file format, plug-in renderers, a wide range of high level geometries, hierarchical models, and a consistent and object-orientated API.
i3D-converter creates a 3D representation from a couple of images (or a pair of stereo images). This program also performs other Computer Vision operations such as, edge and corner detection, image filtering, getting geometric shapes,...
Sea3D is a 3D OpenGL implementation of the widely popular board game Settlers of Catan, including Seafarers. It has full textures, lighting, 3D rotation, panning, zooming, hotseat and network play, and has built-in game finding and ELO ladder ranking.
Cuts 3D objects from polystyrene foam (EPS/XPS)
A robotic DIY styrofoam cutter consisting of one rotational and two translational axes. It cuts a variety of shapes out of styrofoam-like materials using a hot wire. This project documents the necessary hardware and software parts. Don't miss the follow-up project at http://raumschaum.org Its goal is to further develop hardware and software into an user friendly application.
