  • FreeCAD

    FreeCAD is a general purpose parametric 3D CAD modeler. The development is completely Open Source (LGPL License). FreeCAD is aimed directly at mechanical engineering and product design but also fits in a wider range of uses around engineering, such as architecture or other engineering specialties. FreeCAD features tools similar to Catia, SolidWorks or Solid Edge, and therefore also falls into the category of MCAD, PLM, CAx and CAE.

  • B-processor

    In B-processor a consequent 3D working method is pursued. Top, front and side views are abandoned. All modelling takes place in a perspective 3D view which results in a very realistic and intuitive workflow. The usability and tool design is related to google’s sketch up software and therefore more intuitive and simpler to learn than any common BIM software. Meanwhile it provides a clear and strict object structure which is the key for successful Information Modelling.
