+NanoEngineer: open-source nanotech CAD
+==============================
+
+NanoEngineer-1 is an open-source molecular modeling and simulation system that looks and feels like SolidWorks. It features an easy-to-use interactive 3D graphical user interface for designing and modeling large, atomically precise composite systems like molecular machines, DNA, carbon nanotubes, peptide chains, machine elements, etc.
+
+For simulation and analysis, NanoEngineer-1 supports multiple molecular dynamics and quantum mechanics systems in a single environment, providing a wide range of nano-scale simulation capabilities. The following molecular dynamics and quantum chemistry packages are supported:
+
+ * [GROMACS](http://www.gromacs.org/gromacs/features/feature-summary.html)
+ * [GAMESS](http://www.msg.ameslab.gov/GAMESS/)
+ * [PC GAMESS](http://classic.chem.msu.su/gran/gamess/)
+ * [Massively Parallel Quantum Chemistry (MPQC) Program](http://www.mpqc.org/)

+
+More information about these images can be found [on the nanorex.com gallery](http://nanoengineer-1.com/content/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=36&Itemid=46).
+
+Many of the images and animations in these galleries have been rendered with [QuteMol](http://qutemol.sourceforge.net/), a new open-source, interactive, high quality molecular visualization system which exploits the latest GPU capabilities through OpenGL shaders to offers an array of innovative visual effects. QuteMol was developed by [Marco Tarini](http://vcg.isti.cnr.it/~tarini) and [Paolo Cignoni](http://vcg.isti.cnr.it/~cignoni) of the [Visual Computing Lab](http://vcg.isti.cnr.it/) at [ISTI - CNR](http://www.isti.cnr.it/).
