The previous suggestions that IMO had some relevance were Blender and
BRLCAD.  I hadn't heard of OpenCascade but it looks interesting.

There are other open-source CAD packages with not enough features
(2D-only, specialized for PCB layout, 3D rendering systems that don't
have the to-scale accuracy features of a CAD system, etc.)
