MeshLab is an open source, portable, and extensible system for the processing and editing of unstructured 3D triangular meshes. The system is aimed to help the processing of the typical not-so-small unstructured models arising in 3D scanning, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this kind of meshes.

Slic3r is the tool you need to convert a digital 3D model into printing instructions for your 3D printer. It cuts the model into horizontal slices (layers), generates toolpaths to fill them and calculates the amount of material to be extruded.


Full Description: 

3D modeling and animation software. It combines flexible plugins with a visualization pipeline architecture, making K-3D a versatile and powerful tool for artists.

2D CAD for Windows, Linux and Mac. Open source application for computer aided drafting (CAD) in two dimensions (2D). With QCAD you can create technical drawings such as plans for buildings, interiors, mechanical parts or schematics and diagrams. QCAD was designed with modularity, extensibility and portability in mind. What people notice most often about QCAD is its intuitive user interface. QCAD is an easy to use but powerful 2D CAD system for everyone. You don't need any CAD experience to get started with QCAD immediately. QCAD can be extended through a C++ plugin interface as well as through its very powerful and complete scripting interface (ECMAScript/JavaScript).

Parametric modeling allows you to easily modify your design by going back into your model history and changing its parameters. FreeCAD is open source (LGPL license) and completely modular, allowing for very advanced extension and customization. FreeCAD is multiplatfom, and reads and writes many open file formats such as STEP, IGES, STL and others. Got yourself a project you want to build, have built, or 3D printed? Model it in FreeCAD. No previous CAD experience required.


Full Description: 

Software for creating solid 3D CAD objects. Unlike other 3D model creation software it focuses on the CAD aspects. Use it to create 3D models of machine parts. OpenSCAD provides two main modelling techniques. It offers constructive solid geometry (aka CSG) and extrusion of 2D outlines. It can read DXF, STL and OFF files.

There's also an Android version ( ).


Full Description: 

Rendera is an open-source painting program. The tools, shapes, blenders, edge-wrapping and cloning may all be combined to suit a particular need. This program is different in that brushstrokes are computed and rendered after being drawn. Some uses for Rendera include photo restoration, colorizing, making seamless tiles, etc.

Notes: Latest source available from github. Sourceforge has a Windows port.
