FreeCAD is a parametric 3D modeler. 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 features tools similar to Catia, SolidWorks or Solid Edge, and therefore also falls into the category of MCAD, PLM, CAx and CAE. It is a feature based parametric modeler with a modular software architecture which makes it easy to provide additional functionality without modifying the core system.
FreeCAD is multiplatfom, and reads and writes many open file formats such as STEP, IGES, STL and others.

Informance believes in the the cultural shift by digital technology that is transforming design, construction, operation, and inhabitation of buildings. At the core of this shift digital information is replacing traditional modes of documentation and communication in the design and construction industry. This liberation with a simultaneous gain of control is an opportunity for change and innovation.

Onix i s an open source robotic controller for universal robots currently in beta. Right now onix can generate URscript programs for universal robots using it's inverse kinematic solver with the ability to stream directly to the multiple robots at once.
The set of tools includes Inverse kinematic solver for the non spherical wrist UR10 robots, end effectors and I/O tools, program generation and program streaming components. All the tools are open source under the creative common licence.Feel free to edit update and improve the codes and clusters and share it with others.
The tool was created during the AAC "adaptive architecture and computation 2012/2013" course Thesis , Bartlett school of architecture, UCL, London.

G30 Obuchi Laboratory at the University of Tokyo is dedicated to interdisciplinary design research connecting architecture, engineering, and computations to explore the ecosystems of contemporary urban environments. It seeks to develop and speculate upon new knowledge for architecture, where the practice of design engages in both social constructs and material performances on a number of scales. Its goal is to redefine the role of architecture as the essential element to theorise, conceptualise, analyse, form, organise, and generate new ideas of and for sustainable future–‐built environments.
