KiCad

http://www.kicad-pcb.org
KiCad is an EDA software suite for the creation of professional schematics and printed circuit boards.

KiCad is electronic design automation (EDA) software made for designing schematics of electronic circuits and printed circuit boards (PCB). KiCad is developed by the KiCad Developers Team, and features an integrated environment with schematic capture, bill of materials list, PCB layout and much more. KiCad is cross-platform, written with WxWidgets and runs on FreeBSD, Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. A lot of component libraries are available. Also migrating tools for components are available (from other EDA software tools). File formats are plain text and well documented, which is good for CVS or Subversion and to make automated component generation scripts.

Multiple languages are supported, such as English, Portuguese, Spanish, Czech, Polish, French, German, and Russian.

The 3D PCB viewer use 3D model from Wings3D CAD.
