Free drawing software for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
Dia Diagram Editor is free Open Source drawing software for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Dia supports more than 30 different diagram types like flowcharts, network diagrams, database models. More than a thousand readymade objects help to draw professional diagrams. Dia can read and write a number of different raster and vector image formats. Software developers and database specialists can use Dia as a CASE tool to generate code skeletons from their drawings. Dia can be scripted and extended using Python.
K-3D is the free (as in freedom) 3d modeling, animation, and rendering system.
2D & 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language
Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. Asymptote provides for figures the same high-quality typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text.
Inkscape has now pages support. You can create a multiple page document using Inkscape, just like in Corel Draw. Install this extension, restart Inkscape and you're done. Insert new pages, navigate through pages, print all pages in a single PDF.
This Inkscape extension provides table support for Inkscape. This is one of the features that are present in Corel Draw but are not present in Inkscape. So, just install this extension and you will have table support in Inkscape
Whyteboard is a painting whiteboard application for Linux and Windows, that allows the annotation of PDF and PostScript documents, and image files with common drawing tools.
Skencil is a vector drawing program. It's written almost completely in python for flexibilty with some modules written in C for speed.
Box is a language specifically designed to make vector graphics easy plus a integrated development environment which facilitates the use of the language by interactively showing the graphical output. Box combines the convenience of drawing figures with the mouse with the convenience of describing them with a language tailored for vector graphics.
sconcho is a GUI for creating knitting charts.
APTOS is an open source Apt translator project. It consists of several CAM applications, based on the Apt programming language. It is used to create control programs for cnc mills, lathes, water jets, lasers, and other industrial equipment.
ThanCad is a 2dimensional cad, with limited 3d support and raster inclusion capability and emphasis in engineering. It is being written in Python and since it uses the Tkinter library, it is platform independent.
Free 3D Acropolis is a model 3D in hight resolution of the Acropolis of Athens shortly after its construction.
The main goal of this project is to create a system-independent MathML rendering engine in Python. This engine works with an abstract 'plotter' driver class, that can be subclassed for any rendering device needed.
Fandango, formerly and internally know as elcad. It is a python scripted 3d CAD application; the core is programmed on C++, and interface functions are exported to python to be used as building blocks for new commands.
A web based animation development environment.
AutoManga will provide authoring tools (integrated with the Skencil vector graphics program) and PyGame (SDL) based display tools for parametric character animation, with tools and helpers optimized for "manga-style" characters. Uses 2D SVG "cels".
DiaCanvas is a library for drawing diagrams. It is completely Model/View/Controller based and has a Visio (DIA) look. The package also contains a Python wrapper for the library.
GeekCAD is a free open source CAD system. It's based on Qt4. Features of this project: 1. dxf import, export; 2. raster bitmaps export; 3. native postscript or pdf export (in future); 4. Python scripting; 5. Parametric drawings.
Guilloche is designed to generate guilloche patterns, as seen on currency, certificates, etc.
Extension to iterate custom Python snippets over objects
An inkscape extension, written in python, that accepts snippets of Python code, and iteratively executes them over a set of objects. Iteration can be over the current selection, or over an XPath. Python code is given the current node and attributes, and can modify or delete the node, create new nodes, or simply perform calculations.
InkscapePortable is a portable version of Inkscape for use with portable devices on "Microsoft Windows".
A general vector-based 2D graphics editor created using wxWidgets, using Python as control script.
OriSVG attends to give some help to origami diagrams designers by providing markers, arrows, strokes and preformated diagrams in SVG language, and some Inkscape's plugins and scripts.
Hyzenthlay, named after the Efrafan Doe from Watership Down rather than the plant, is a vector-based graphics rendering, manipulation and machinima program, distributed in Open Source fromat programmed using Python. This project is currently in plan...
Aims to be a vector IDE for publishing SVG among other things. Svengali core is a python webkit interface that communicates with various creation and display tools over DBus. Interfaces with text editors, browsers, InkScape, apache, cad, & etc.
