Creates 3D models from photographs
Regard3D is a free, multiplatform, open-source structure-from-motion application. It creates 3D models of objects, based on photographs from different angles.
VPython is an easy-to-use 3D graphics module for Python.
Toolkit for exporting/importing Maya scenes to/from OpenSceneGraph
Click3d is a free 3d modeling program.
Mesh and point cloud processing tools
A suite of tools for processing and analyzing meshes and point clouds. 1) Ensuring that meshes are manifold, ie, "nice" 2) Simple smoothing/noise reduction 3) Bare-bones point cloud to mesh and robust normals for point clouds 4) Mesh simplification 5) Curvature calculation on meshes 6) Local shape descriptors on meshes
Misfit Cubed is a mod of Misfit3D that includes an MD5 exporter
Misfit Modeller 3D is our favorite open source, low poly modeller. Unfortunately the original developers gave up on development a few years ago leaving the project orphaned. Misfit Cubed is the last released version of Misfit3D (1.38) with an MD5 exporter added and some bug fixes of the Windows version. The Linux version has been implemented using the plugin system, there is currently no MacOS version, but if someone would like to do one... Misfit Cubed was developed to specifically make it easy to make MD5 models for our game, MekArcade, based on the Cube2 game engine. The exporter DOES NOT handle misfit tags properly - please read the documentation in the wiki. We would love to add more, such as SMD import and export, IQM export etc, however we don't have the time or resources. Misfit really deserves to be loved and cared for properly. . If there any C++ coders out there who are interested in helping please contact me, ASAP. Anyway, enjoy.
3D tree generator
This project was designed as fork of Arbaro tree generator. But later it was totally rewritten since 1.0.7 version. Main goal is creating tree generator which can create tree modes to be used in computer games(low poly).
3D model scanner software primarily for linux systems. - Webcam and line laser required for scanning process! - exports textured wavefront object
3D Architecture modelling and physics simulation system
AnkerWorld is a graphical application. It is used to create and visualize 3d architecture models based on the famous Anker (TM) architecture blocks invented in 1880. The static behaviour of the buildings can be simulated with bullet physics. The animations can be raytraced with povray. See an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpXdiH_gvBg
AudioCarver is a music composition application featuring a user interface based on 3d modeling.
Short C++/Java/C#/Python benchmark
This is a short C++/Java/C#/Python benchmark. Based on Paul Heckbert's sources. Thank you Paul!
Discrete-event simulation library.
This project's goal is to develop and maintain a high-quality, 3D, physics-enabled, discrete-event simulation library that can be used for industrial simulation projects in an engineering and/or manufacturing environment.
Not your usual Architectural Modeler
Why do Archicad and Revit only share 30 or 40% of the global architectural sofware market ? Maybe because lots of small practices find these software unadapted to the way they work, and to their bank account. I think there's place for an open software that doesn't work like the existing. It will be simple in its tools and processes, and will have infinite capabilities. This will be possible by defining a logical structure. As I am an architect, and I know very little about programming, and wouldn't reach even in 10 years the necessary level to be able to write anything useful for this type of software, my part will be to bring ideas and coherence to this project. If you want to know some more : - go to the blog https://sourceforge.net/p/mollino/blog/ - write me a message ;) I speak french, german, english and italian. Martin Lucas
Free and Open source for 3D creation
Moonlight RT is an environment dedicated to virtual creation. It is based on OpenGL and does 3D modelling and rendering for now.
Calculates Volume, Surface Area & Centroid of a Closed Triangular Mesh
The ObjectVolume program calculates the volume, surface area and centroid of a closed triangular mesh represented in an object file (.obj). The process goes through the list of triangles that make up the surface and, for each triangle, forms a tetrahedron with an external point. The program uses the origin (0,0,0). The volume of the tetrahedron is then calculated. Tetrahedrons with back facing triangles are added and those with forward facing triangles are subtracted yielding the object volume. A detailed description of the process is presented in the ObjectVolumeTutorial.doc document as well as program logic and results. A key component in the program is a subroutine that calculates the volume of a tetrahedron. Four sets of equations were tested and to my surprise all four produced similar results in accuracy and timing.
This Project seeks to extend the life-cycle of Blender 2.49b through updating, adding, & modifying Python Scripts and Code used to Create, Model, & texture Sculpts for Second Life & other Open Sim virtual worlds.
