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.
DXF2GCODE: converting 2D dxf drawings to CNC machine compatible G-Code

Impact is an explicit Finite Element Program Suite which simulates dynamic impact events. It has a range of elements, contact handling and different material laws. Models can be created, solved and analyzed with the included pre- and postprocessor. Impact is based on an Explicit Time stepping algorithm. These kind of codes are used to simulate dynamic phenomena such as car crashes and similar, usually involving large deformations.
Static and Dynamic Structural Analysis of 2D and 3D frames.
FRAME3DD is a program for the static and dynamic structural analysis of two- and three-dimensional frames and trusses with elastic and geometric stiffness.
PythonCAD is a CAD package written, surprisingly enough, in Python using the PyQt interface. The PythonCAD project aims to produce a scriptable, open-source, easy to use CAD package for Linux (Cross Platforms)
Open Knowledge on engineering development.
Libre Mechanics it’s an Open Knowledge project created to offer a useful platform of information related with the development and research of Mechanical Engineering themes and similar fields, higly related with the use of Open Source and Software Libre tools. Here you will find a wide variety of projects, publications and scientific material available as references for developing their own projects, also guides and tutorials that allow you to take advantage of free software tools available today. The four principal lines of work are: Design Analysis and Simulation Automation and Robotics Development

An EnergyPlus shell for parametric studies and more ...
Parametric analysis is often needed for exploring design options, especially when a global optimization method is not available, or the optimization result is in doubt. Parametric analysis can also be applied to all design variables simultaneously, which forms an exhaustive search that, providing that the search grid is fine enough, will guarantee a global optimum solution. In order to perform complex parametric analyses on multiple parameters with more than a handful of alternative values each, a tool to generate commands for the simulation model to run, and to collect results afterwards will be needed. jEPlus has been developed as such a parametric tool for EnergyPlus. To see jEPlus in action, check out this video: http://youtu.be/jBA7Q7npNK4 The source code of the jEPlus project is now hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/jeplus/jEPlus/

NURBS-based elastic and limit analysis of masonry arches in MATLAB
ArchNURBS is a MATLAB tool for the analysis of planar curved structures, with a particular attention to masonry arches. As in CAD softwares, the geometry of the model is defined by a NURBS representation of the structure. Indeed, the user can upload geometries imported from a CAD environment. Based on such a representation, ArchNURBS performs the elastic isogeometric finite element analysis and the collapse limit analysis of the structure. It is possible to include in the analysis the presence of Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRP) extrados and intrados strips. A comprehensive descritpion of ArchNURBS is given in "ArchNURBS: NURBS-Based Tool for the Structural Safety Assessment of Masonry Arches in MATLAB", A. Chiozzi, M. Malagu', A. Tralli and A.Cazzani, J. Comput. Civil Eng., 2015. (http://ascelibrary.org/doi/abs/10.1061/%28ASCE%29CP.1943-5487.0000481) ArchNURBS has been developed thanks to a collaboration between the University of Ferrara (Italy) and the University of Cagliar
