Open Source graphic tool and alternative to Insane Bump
AwesomeBump is a free and open source graphic app written using Qt library. It was made as an alternative to known gimp plugin Insane Bump or the commercial tool Crazy Bump. It is designed to generate normal, height, specular or ambient occlusion, metallic, roughness and other textures from a single image. Most of the image processing is done on GPU so the program runs very fast and all the parameters can be changed in real time.

Highly accurate ray-tracing software system for UNIX computers
Radiance is a free, highly accurate ray-tracing software system for UNIX computers. It is a suite of programs designed for the analysis and visualization of lighting in design. Radiance is superior to simpler lighting calculation and rendering tools in that there are no limitations on the geometry or the materials that may be simulated. Scene geometry, materials, luminaires, time, date and sky conditions (for daylight calculations) are specified; spectral radiance (ie. luminance + color), irradiance (illuminance + color) and glare indices are calculated. Simulation results may be displayed as color images, numerical values and contour plots. Radiance is useful for architects and engineers in predicting illumination, visual quality and appearance of innovative design spaces; and for researchers in evaluating new lighting and daylighting technologies.
OpenGL 4.5 3D engine - modern/advanced and easy to use.
A 3D engine built in C# using OpenTK - it makes use of modern rendering techniques/shaders. Still in very active development.

G3D is a commercial-grade C++ 3D engine. It is used in commercial games, research papers, military simulators, and university courses. G3D supports real-time rendering, off-line rendering like ray tracing, and general purpose computation on GPUs. Active G3D development has moved to http://g3d.cs.williams.edu. The sourceforge site is no longer maintained.
Maxwell Render for Blender
B-Maxwell add-on offers seamless integration with Maxwell Render and Blender
Open Factory 3D is a free factory design application that helps you to place your machines and factory equipment on a factory 2D plan, with a 3D preview.
XNavigator is a Virtual Earth browser and viewer for http://osm-3d.org
XNavigator is the online viewer for the OpenStreetMap Globe at http://osm-3d.org and much more. It is an interactive 3D viewer and integrated client for exploring virtual city and landscape models. A wide range of interaction and navigation possibilities makes it easy to visualize and analyze very detailed virtual urban environments. XNavigator is the first application that supports the Web3DService (W3DS) service interface.

Galaxy extraterrestrial life simulation
EtiC is a galaxy simulation software that generates and renders a mock galaxy for rational estimation of the number of extraterrestrial civilizations. Stars and planets are simulated with plausible physical characteristics, based on user-adjustable parameters. An EtiC simulation run consists to generate a galaxy disk physical stars, associate planets to the stars, and for habitable planets, simulate the life stages evolution until extinction. A visual animation of the galaxy and user selection of highlighted star-planet objects is provided, together with statistics (25+ graphs) and estimates of Drake equation factors. The V2_1 provides several new features: planets surface magnetic field, reworked life stage transitions, integration of MW exoplanets catalog, planets view and graphs window optionally on different threads... EtiC is based on OpenGL / GLFW 3.2, runs on MSWindows 7 and MacOsX. Source code in C++, was developped using the Dev-C++ IDE and XCode.
rayshade and POV for Mathematica Export + view
Beautifully Render* your Graphic3D and Shown or Manipulate right in the Front End (without Export to, ie 3DStudio Art Renderer, et al). For use with Mathematica 4.0 - 11.0. Makes file.ray or .pov that will look much like image in notebook except rendered. Works easily/automatically with many Graphics3D (and some Graphic) as well. However 11.0 is too big to comment on: many will work many not. Has many options to fix renders that aren't so auto. Now very portable (Apple, Microsoft, Linux) supported (given rayshade or povray binary download or compiled). No OS scripting needed. * raytracing makes more realistic images than GL/CL/Cuda (are best for game, geo/mapping, accelerated) but is slower. POVRay is supported about as well. For a .gif animation see: http://community.wolfram.com/groups/-/m/t/1096001 see also: https://sourceforge.net/p/rayshade http://www.povray.org
