Rhino Start with a sketch, drawing, physical model, or only an idea-Rhino provides the tools to accurately model your designs ready for rendering, animation, drafting, engineering, analysis, and manufacturing. This fully functional version will save 25 times. After that it is still functional except it will not save. The evaluation version also supports plug-ins. http://download.mcneel.com/rhino/3.0/eval/
PTC Pro/ENGINEER Pro/ENGINEER Complete NC Machining provides manufacturing engineers and job shops with complete NC programming capabilities and tool libraries that allow users to create all types of programs for CNC machines. It enables them to work concurrently with designers to automatically incorporate design changes, dramatically increasing product quality, reducing scrap, and cutting production time and costs.
Provides NC programming capabilities to create, verify, and optimize programs for all machine types: 2 1/2- to 5-axis milling (including continuous multi-axis), 2- to 4-axis turning, mill/turn machines (live tooling) and 2- to 4-axis wire EDM. http://bbweek.bitpipe.com/detail/PROD/1017065059_486.html
CAD/CAM Acronym for computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing, computer systems used to design and manufacture products. The term CAD/CAM implies that an engineer can use the system both for designing a product and for controlling manufacturing processes. For example, once a design has been produced with the CAD component, the design itself can control the machines that construct the part. http://winplanet.webopedia.com/TERM/C/CAD_CAM.html
Calc 3D The calculator can do statistics, best fits, function plotting, integration. It handles vectors, matrices, complex numbers, quaternions, coordinates, regular polygons and intersections.
For point, line, plane, sphere, circle Calc 3D calculates distances, intersections, and some additional information like volume and area.
Cartesian, spherical and cylindrical coordinates can be transformed into each other.
Carthesian plot, polar plot, parametric plot, best fit, fast fourier transformation, histogram, smooth,...
Several languages can be handeled. http://www.greuer.de/ecalc3d.html
