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.
A microscopic pedestrian crowd simulation system and library
PEDSIM is a microscopic pedestrian crowd simulation system. The PEDSIM library allows you to use pedestrian dynamics in your own software. Based on pure C++ without additional packages, it runs virtually on every operating system. The PEDSIM Demo Application gives you a quick overview of the capabilities, and is a starting point for your own experiments. PEDSIM is suitable for use in crowd simulations (e.g. indoor evacuation simulation, large scale outdoor simulations), where one is interested in output like pedestrian density or evacuation time. Also, the quality of the individual agent's trajectory is high enough for creating massive pedestrian crowds in movies. Since libpedsim is easy to use and extend, it is a good starting point for science projects.
Libsmog is a flexible 3D game engine written in C++. It has been designed from the ground up to provide a dynamic, performance oriented, flexible, multi-player, easy to implement audio and visual experience.
NalaCAD is a computer aided design program. Its goal is to be a professional, and open-source CAD (Computer Aided Design) Package for a variety of operating systems.
Quan is designed to model physical quantities in C++ programs. Advantages include automated dimensional analysis checking, automatic unit conversions, self documentation of code.
