FreeCAD is a customizable, open-source paramentic 3D CAD and BIM software with FEM support, built on the Opencascade geometric kernel. It was created primarily for product design and mechanical engineering, but it can be used in a wide range of industries, such as electrical engineering, or architecture. It runs on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

FreeCAD is made to craft real-life objects of different sizes and is perfect for a home user/amateur, programmer, experienced CAD software user, or educator. This software provides tools similar to those of SolidWorks, Catia or Autodesk Revit.

CATIA is a multi-platform software kit for CAD/CAM/CAE, PLM and 3D, created by the French company Dassault Systèmes.

Commonly referred to as a 3D PLM software suite, CATIA supports all stages of product development, including conceptualization, design, engineering and manufacturing. CATIA facilitates collaborative engineering across disciplines around its 3DEXPERIENCE platform, including surfacing & shape design, electrical, fluid and electronic systems design, mechanical engineering and systems engineering. CATIA facilitates the design of electronic, electrical, and distributed systems such as fluid and HVAC systems, all the way to the production of documentation for manufacturing.
