Ronja employs BRL-CAD as 3D modeling tool

May 16, 2005 -- BRL-CAD is a free software program developed since 1979 by U.S. Army Ballistic Research Laboratory (BRL). BRL-CAD was released as free software on December 21, 2004. BRL-CAD is used on Ronja for 3D modeling of mechanics.

Architect of BRL-CAD was Mike Muuss (deceased), the author of the PING program. BRL-CAD was routinely used for military modeling tasks, for example for M1 Abrams XM-1 prototype modeling. BRL was a laboratory that was tightly tied with world's history of computing, hosting computers like ENIAC, or CRAY-2, the most powerful computer on the planet that time. BRL was also one of the first nodes of ARPANET, prototype of the Internet.
