View Full Version : Computer Aided Engineering Spin?

28th July 2011, 11:53 PM
I'm curious how one might go about creating a Fedora Spin (getting started, etc.). I think that there's a real need for bundled CAE software. I've done some research, and open-source software is in development.

I've noticed the Fedora Electronics Lab, which seems like a great bundle of software. CAElinux seems like a pretty good attempt at putting together mechanical engineering and design tools into a single package. Yet, I've noticed that a lot of those open-source engineering tools aren't available in the YUM repositories (CalculiX, FreeCAD, Salome, OpenCASCADE).

So... how would one go about making such a bundle?
