Civil Engineering Design functions

Have some feature requests, feedback, cool stuff to share, or want to know where FreeCAD is going? This is the place.

At this point import_osm command works and the pop-up window shows up.
But it remains stuck at 0% forever.

How can i fix this?

Thank you

Do the other testcases run on your system?
What happens when you press the run values a 2nd time?
what is the output in the report view window?
what is in your .FreeCAD/geodat directory?

Predefined locations work perfectly.

I placed geodat in the following directory under windows 7 C:\19_FREECAD\FreeCAD_0.17.10490_x86_dev_win\Mod\geodata
geodata_folder.JPG

My apology, I don't know why, or how... but it is now working with my random location! It never worked before.

It's probably the double click on the "Run values" that makes the trick!

Thank you.

So what would be good examples of to overlap QGIS and FreeCAD using this new functionality ?

I have paused the work on this domain because I first needed better tools to generate parametric curves.
meanwhile there is a good sketcher bspline support , so building of roads, bridge or underground structures should be easier.

I work at school on a 3D model of our city

we have the slice mdels and start cutting ...
next year we start the bridge.

Hello,

I'm a licensed professional engineer in the US and I am currently helping implement 3D cad into our highway design workflows at the state Department of Transportation, using Bentley Open Roads.

I've had a lot of exposure to Microstation and I understand State DOT design workflows. Personally, I don't believe Bentley's software is sufficient for engineering design in transportation, and from what I can tell, Civil3D is no better.

That said, I'm really excited to see this initiative. Being an experienced C++ programmer and open source, Linux user, I'm really interested in adding the functionality to give Free CAD parity with the current commercial options for the transportation engineering domain. I think we can do it better, personally.

Anyway, I'm happy to lend my skills to the cause.

Joel

I'd love to, but FreeCAD seems a bit complex, so it looks like I've got a little homework to do. Since I'm interested in developing better support for transportation engineering, it'd be nice to have a few ideas of where we're at and where we'd like the project to go. I mean, I've got my own ideas, but I'd sooner defer to someone else's vision for the time being...

I'll pull the source, get a build running and start going through the wiki, but I'd appreciate a little discussion if there's any to be had.

Thanks,

Joel

Hi Joel

In any case, it would be interesting to hear your ideas about the kind of functionality that you would think necessary... This thread is a big pot where everybody is throwing ideas, at some point we'll be able to build a good roadmap out of it
