C-Geo for Windows is a computer application which enables importation of survey data from geodetic instruments (electronic tacheometers, code levels, field recorders, GPS receivers). The application performs functions of CAD programs ( editing of vector maps and raster maps). It also contains GIS systems functionality (databases associated with map objects). C-Geo is designed for surveyors, designers and engineers in other specializations. At present it is used by over two thousand small and large geodetic companies in Poland as well companies from branches such as: geodesy and cartography, constructing, road-building, archeology, railroad engineering, storage operation, geology, industrial plants (shipyards, breweries), municipal enterprises, military units, departments of geodetic administration, mining, medicine, advanced and mid-level university studies.
LPKF CircuitCAM PCB software provides the user with a sophisticated CAM station. It can control all production data, modify the design, step and repeat the complete layout, perform different design rule checks, generate ground planes, input text using TrueType fonts, and generate routing data. LPKF CircuitCAM PCB is also a very efficient data converter, such as converting AutoCAD data to Gerber data.
Displays and manipulates data to do with heating and cooling, sun and shade etc., with respect to climate and seasons, monthly and yearly cycles. Intended for architects designing heat-efficient buildings.
Hydraulic calculation of water heating. Used by many developers of heating equipment: Danfoss, Kan-Therm, Herz Armaturen and other. The program with equipment database may be downloaded (free) from YOUR LOCAL web site of the equipment developer! Only a demo version may be downloaded from http://www.sankom.eu/download-files.
Is a parametric design software developed for use in industrial design, mechanical and manufacturing CNC, written in C. Its management as a support tool in the mechanical design is taught in many universities.
PCB schematic and board editor provided by RS Components. Direct import of Eagle files with no restrictions on board size or layers, etc. Full autorouting, ERC, DRC, copper fill. Excellent wizards for component library creation and board creation. Functionally very similar to Eagle but totally free!
ECOTECT is a complete building design and environmental analysis tool that covers the full range of simulation and analysis functions required to truly understand how a building design will operate and perform. It finally allows designers to work easily in 3D and apply all the tools necessary for an energy efficient and sustainable future.
eMachineShop is an online machine shop for custom parts. The freely downloadable software allows you to draw the part to your specifications. The software gives you pricing options based on a downloaded pricing file. You simply click to order and the part is machined by eMachineShop and delivered to your door.
Engineering Equation Solver can solve simultaneous equations, make parametric tables and graphs. It is best used for Engineering Thermodynamic applications because it has built in functions for that purpose.
Student version of the DesignWorks circuit layout program. Powerful design tool for value but frustrating UI, utterly worthless error messages. Moderately common use in digital design classes as inexpensive alternative to AutoCAD or DesignWorks (which in this context means, US$100 rather than $US1000).
MillWrite is a versatile computer aided machining program designed primarily for producing "G-code" files for engraving with CNC machines. Engraving can be done on many surfaces such as flat, sloped, cylindrical, cone shaped, and spherical. MillWrite can also contour, spiral pocket and contour/pocket with islands. MillWrite also imports DXF, NC, and Plotter files and can export to DXF.
Mike's LEGO Computer Aided Design (MLCAD) is a CAD program for making virtual LEGO models. It uses the extensive LDraw parts library and it allows the user to create practically any model of any size and complexity.
Integrated Schematic to finished PCB CAD system. Very fast. Extensive library support and offers I/O conversion from several other popular systems. All native I/O files are openly documented and in ASCII format.
Architectural CAD software primarily for Home Design offers wide variety of GUI tools to develop foundation, floorplan, roofing plan, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, outdoor deck and landscape. Enough detail to meet National Code standards, but still easy to use.
Atlas' Right Track Software allows you to design your model railroad design using various scales such as HO, O and N scale. It features a massive array of track sizes. You can also order all the parts required of Atlas. You can also view the layout in a 3D environment.
Legacy 2D CAD. Full featured, including "snap to" drawing tools, user programmable active symbols, automatic dimensioning, sheets, layers, double lines. Includes templates for AEC, Electrical, Site, Org Chart, Welding. Includes tutorials.
SPIRIT is one of the most important modules of the BUILDING INFORMATION NETWORK which consistently supports you from the first sketch to visualization and from permit planning to quantity take-off. Disciplines comprise architects, interior designers, stress analysts or carpenters as well as town councils or general contractors.
Tina Pro is an electronic simulator package with schematic capture. It is very easy to use, very fast and quite accurate. It also features virtual test equipment such as network analysers and oscilloscopes.
Easy to use program for drawing house plans. Draw 2D floor plans and elevation views, using drag and drop icons for different kinds of rooms and architectural elements. 3D perspective walkthroughs can be done at any time.
TREPCAD is a CAD/CAE application that assists in drawing stairs to be made of steel that adhere to common standards, like DIN 18065, ISO 14122-3. The actual CAD is done 2D, but you can view a 3D model of the stair.
Use the free* DWG TrueView™ to accurately view, plot, and publish authentic DWG and DWF files. And now, DWG TrueView™ incorporates all the functionality of DWG TrueConvert™. This means you can translate any AutoCAD™ or AutoCAD-based drawing file for compatibility.
2D and 3D CAD, available to Mac and Windows. Until the version 7 it was knowed as MiniCAD. Many CAD users working with this around the world. It is used for drafting, technical drawing and 3D modeling.
