Re: Civil engineering feature implementation (Transportation Engineering)

Just an excuse to bump the thread. :) A little progress on FreeCAD Turns. This is an example vehicle with Ackermann steering functioning properly. Also added steering angle limits, since most cars can't turn their wheel backwards. Also, the graphics are being done entirely with pivy_trackers. It's a...

Re: Wanting to contribute to FreeCad, but go some small questions..

Actually, I am trying to get better in both C++ and Computer Graphics. If you want to do it with FreeCAD, I'd pick one or the other, frankly. "Computer Graphics" is a bit generic. If you want to deal with CG from a code perspective, you're really talking about the Coin3D scenegraph (or OpenCascade)...

If you feel comfortable with C++ code (in general), maybe another useful path to dive into Freecad is to browse the bug tracker and try to fix some issues or add some features.
What he said. There's always bugs to be squashed. :)

Re: Wanting to contribute to FreeCad, but go some small questions..

Should I first invest some time learned open cascade or is there any good/sufficient resources for modelling kernels? Or should I dive into the source code of freecad directly? That really depends on what you're interested in doing with FreeCAD. The goal of just learning a geometry kernel is a bit ...

I believe these are equivalent.
I didn't know about the -c parameter. That's what I meant by --headless. :lol:

As for init.py / init_gui.py, I really am not terribly familiar with the inner workings for the new style, but I had assumed they were the same.

Re: FreeCAD enhancements proposals

Not sure if this is really necessary. Too many tools will make it more difficult to track all the stuff going on. I guess keeping this as simple as possible will help to get involved. This is a simple repo with enhancement-proposals as markdown files, PR's and issues. That's all. But for sure we ca...

Re: Workbench-Starterkit refactor

So in my eyes it's important to define the future import-structure of freecad first and afterward align the StarterKit to this structure. But all this will rely on the python-rule to not have multiple versions of the same package in one system/environment. This would mean that we can only install o...

Workbench-Starterkit refactor

So I've been playing with the Workbench-Starterkit code for a few months. I really love the new design. It's cleaner and more organized and I think it's poised to be one of the nicest development tools that we can offer new FC devs / superusers. I really want to document the workbench starter kit th...

Re: FreeCAD enhancements proposals

I think it's worth a try. It could be considered as an upgrade to https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Development_roadmap which is hard to maintain. How do you envision it working? A read.me in a git repo, comment on pull requests? How about issues/feature requests to coordinate with mantis. Maybe how ...

Re: New Feature - Addon Manager for developers

I agree. I think this can be done with help from the src/Mod/TemplatePyMod workbench that is in the source tree. It has quite a few examples, although they would need to be checked, because that code seems to have been written a long time ago, and it could use some changes in style and content. It ...
