Take technical drawing to a new level with high-quality typesetting of natural coordinate-based framework.
Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language that provides a natural coordinate-based framework for technical drawing. Labels and equations are typeset with LaTeX, the de-facto standard for typesetting mathematics. A major advantage of Asymptote over other graphics packages is that it is a programming language, as opposed to just a graphics program. You can even run it in your browser without installing it, using the Asymptote Web Application. Just enter the code import workcone; (including the semicolon) and click the Run button.
Features of Asymptote:
- provides a portable standard for typesetting mathematical figures, just as TeX/LaTeX has become the standard for typesetting equations;
Design signs with text, shapes, and freehand graphics.
Inkscape is a free and open-source vector graphics editor; it can be used to create or edit vector graphics such as illustrations, diagrams, line arts, charts, logos and complex paintings.
