>From the website:

"The BRL-CAD package is a powerful Constructive Solid Geometry (CSG) solid
modeling system with over 20 years development and production use by the
U.S. military. BRL-CAD includes an interactive geometry editor, parallel
ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, path-tracing for
realistic image synthesis, network distributed framebuffer support,
image-processing and signal-processing tools. The entire package is
distributed in source code form."

I have no personal experience with it but I thought that I would pass it
