Software and 3D Print Hardware Available for Free Download

Being both a self-taught computer programmer, an interest which I enthusiastically pursue and continually strive to gain a better understanding of, and no stranger to 3D design and print, I’ve developed some astronomy software packages and hardware which are available here for download. I believe that sharing our resources drives progress in achieving our goals and so these are provided free of charge. If you do find them to be of benefit and you wish to make a donation, then this is of course welcomed and will help me pursue the hobby further, but donations are not expected.
