Open-source CAD on Windows

BRL-CAD, the open-source computer-aided design program first developed by the Army Research Laboratory, is now available for the Microsoft Windows platform.

A long time coming from the project's volunteers, the port now means the software can offer cross-platform capability with Windows and the other supported operating systems, including Linux, Mac OS, Solaris, IRIX, BSD, Irix, Cray UNICOS and A/UX. Version 7.8.0 of BRL-CAD also offers new sample applications, in-memory geometry database processing and improved documentation.
