a parametric 3D CAD modeler
WARNING: FreeCAD has moved! FreeCAD code and release files are now hosted on github at https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD Only older files and code are available here. FreeCAD is a general purpose feature-based, parametric 3D modeler for CAD, MCAD, CAx, CAE and PLM, aimed directly at mechanical engineering and product design but also fits a wider range of uses in engineering, such as architecture or other engineering specialties. It is 100% Open Source and extremely modular, allowing for very advanced extension and customization. FreeCAD is based on OpenCasCade, a powerful geometry kernel, features an Open Inventor-compliant 3D scene representation model provided by the Coin 3D library, and a broad Python API. The interface is built with Qt. FreeCAD runs exactly the same way on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux platforms.
K-3D is the free (as in freedom) 3d modeling, animation, and rendering system.
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.
Misfit Model 3D is an OpenGL-based 3D model editor. It supports multi-level undo, skeletal animations, texturing mapping, scripting, command-line batch processing, and a plugin system for adding new features. Complete online help is included.
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.
Fractal planet and terrain generator
Interactive application to generate and view random fractal planets and terrain with oceans, mountains, icecaps and rivers, then export them to POV-Ray format or Blender. Written in C++ using Qt and OpenGL.
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
Y.A.P.R.M. is a free-as-in-freedom modeller to graphicaly design 3d scenes and generate POV-Ray-files for them. Appart from the basic POV-Ray objects which can be used in CSG operations it supports spline based objects. Furthermore a vast amount of 3d-files can be imported and used with Y.A.P.R.M.
Eloquent is a powerful Bible study tool for Mac OS X, supporting features such as services, to access the Bible in any program. It uses the Sword Library to work with bible texts, commentaries, dictionaries.
GLE is a library of C functions that draw extruded surfaces, including surfaces of revolution, sweeps, tubes, polycones, polycylinders and helicoids. GLE uses the OpenGL(R) API to perform the actual rendering.
Geomorph is a height field generator and editor for Linux
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.
xcruiser aims to provide 3D VR-like interface to UN*X filesystem. It displays directories as galaxies, files as planets (of various properties depending on its attributes) and symlinks as wormholes. You can fly through cyberspace created from these.
Varkon is a very powerful parametric 2D/3D CAD, modeling and application development tool for engineering, design, architecture, etc. It does 2D drafting, 2D and 3D modeling, sculptured surface modeling, and even animations. See our website for details.
