Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

I carried on with this hypothesis, and went on with a little bit of code inspection (get familiar with CMake, learn to compile FreeCAD by modules... etc.). I focused my efforts onto the App and Base modules, and I found another roadblock: Python objects are pretty much handable from C++ . Python.h e...

Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

What do you guys think? Do you realize that the current FreeCAD code base has over 1000 python modules? How many of those might require extra work for some reason? Hope you don't plan to get this done over the weekend. :shock: Gene Oh I know. Further back in the thread there is a post in which I tr...

Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

The thing is that the topic of FreeCAD for iPad opens to a bigger topic, which is transitioning to swift. iPad would come later, if ever. Cool thing is that, until you actually have to squeeze things in an iPad, you don’t even need a mac. It would happen within the linux ecosystem (i think you can e...

Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

I have been thinking about this further, and I see that porting FreeCAD to iPad is not a just a port, it implies porting FreeCAD to Swift. A major codebase transition. And the size of such project pretty much calls for a community approach. (Keeping both massive branches would be inneficient and div...

Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

It may sound like a gimmick... but ipad is quickly becoming a rival to MS Surface. It now supports a mouse. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLyZHFTNGfw so... Qt for iOs is a thing... maybe, just maybe... Dunno - - - - I find that I'm struggling using multiple 1920 x 1080 monitors. I'm wanting to ad...

Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

I’ve been looking into this thing further, and it really seems like the main roadblock would be the UI. The way I understand FreeCAD’s UI, (idk if I am getting this right): the window, toolbars,general UI, etc. is made in QT5 with python bindings. The 3d representation is carried out by pivy, a pyth...

Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

I was actually thinking the same thing... but I struggled with tags... let me see if I can edit it or repost it with humane formatting.

Edit: gave it a shot! Hope is more readable now!

Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

So I’ve been looking into this further... just, for fun. Module Overview I took a look into the FreeCAD documentation on source code, specifically on the description of the source code, and there are some phrases that actually caught my attention, I drew conclusions from them, if any of you is famil...

Re: FreeCAD for iPad?

Ever since I tried Shapr3D, i’ve become obsessed over the idea of CAD in iPad. The pen is what does it for me. Its fantastic. I’ve gotten really really curious about such thing as porting FreeCAD to iPad... Maybe by workbenches, it may be approachable. I’d like to do the exercise of dimensioning the...

Re: Assembly 2 workbench for FreeCAD v0.15

Unfortunately the author of the topic and workbench has not been on the forum since last January. That matter has me worried. The last commit to the GitHub repo is one year old. Is anyone interested in further development of this workbench? Because us folks at Makespace Madrid would like to use thi...
