OpenSCAD & minkowski import to FreeCAD

The way the OpenSCAD workbench handles minkowski requests is to call OpenSCAD to make the request having converted the objects to meshes. This often is a slow process. The attached version takes a different approach, if the minkowski request involves two objects, the two objects have their colours c...

Looking for help with Youtube video creation.

Just wondering if there are any users out there with experience of creating Youtube videos of FreeCAD use that could create a number of short videos on use of the GDML workbench and save me the learning curve so I can concentrate on coding.

You import STLs, and they can be converted into Nurbs surfaces within the Blender application, or maybe using some plugins. Looks like you are right, will have to check it out https://blender.stac...

Re: OpenSCAD as installable workbench

Hi @ vocx I am trying to make OpenSCAD also into an installable workbench.... Did you finish with the GDML workbench? I tried your latest code, I think, but it still showed errors. The workbench loaded but several imports were still not correct, so the tools couldn't be used. I think with OpenSCAD ...

Re: FOSDEM FreeCAD & Blender

If you can get a university involved in helping out FreeCAD, that'd be great.
