OpenSCAD

Screenshot of

OpenSCAD is a software for creating solid 3D CAD models. Unlike most free software for creating 3D models (such as Blender) it does not focus on the artistic aspects of 3D modelling but instead on the CAD aspects. Thus it might be the application you are looking for when you are planning to create 3D models of machine parts but pretty sure is not what you are looking for when you are more interested in creating computer-animated movies.

OpenSCAD is not an interactive modeller. Instead it is something like a 3D-compiler that reads in a script file that describes the object and renders the 3D model from this script file. This gives you (the designer) full control over the modelling process and enables you to easily change any step in the modelling process or make designs that are defined by configurable parameters.

OpenSCAD provides two main modelling techniques: First there is constructive solid geometry (aka CSG) and second there is extrusion of 2D outlines. As data exchange format for this 2D outlines Autocad DXF files are used. In addition to 2D paths for extrusion it is also possible to read design parameters from DXF files. Besides DXF files OpenSCAD can read and create 3D models in the STL and OFF file formats.

PhotoFlare

This is an effort to bring quick, simple but powerful image editing to the masses. PhotoFlare is inspired by the image editor currently only available on Microsoft Windows – PhotoFiltre. However, it will not be a straight clone. It is being built from the ground up to be much improved and cross platform too!

Features:

  • Easy quick cropping tool.
  • Flip, Rotate and scale images.
  • Lots of unique image filters.
  • Batch processing tool with support for all editor features.
  • Multiple translations are supported.

SteamCAD

Screenshot of

SteamCAD is a drawing tool especially designed to create drawings of steam locomotives. The software is very lightweight, the user interface is minimalistic. As a result, the drawing area is not obscured by controls and can occupy the whole screen. This is what makes SteamCAD different from any other CAD. StreamCAD is focused on productivity, not on the fancy look.

rasterview

Screenshot of

RasterView is a CUPS, PWG, and Apple raster file viewing application.

It basically allows you to visually evaluate raster data produced by any of the standard CUPS RIP filters (cgpdftoraster, imagetoraster, pdftoraster and pstoraster). It is normally used to either test those filters or look at the data that is being sent to your raster printer driver.

RasterView is provided as free software under version 2 of the GNU General Public license.
