Re: Collaborative CAD platform

another question. as far as I understand it display the brep of the freecad file, so I guess it is why, on a single file, with a single body, when we are suppose to see only one part, there is also other "part" displayed? The web display for FreeCAD files now takes visibility (as defined in the Gui...

Re: Collaborative CAD platform

what is the Error 500? I get this error when I display a FreeCAD-file which contains only a mesh. The meshes are stored in BMS fomat (Binary Mesh) in the zipped FCSTD file (Just like the parts are stored in BREP format). Do you know any other way than headless FreeCAD to get to a JSON for WebGL? (I...

Re: Collaborative CAD platform

I know we discussed this before, but if just PythonOCC and OCC used in FreeCAD matches this problem should go away. If it would help I should be able to provide a Win build that does this. It's also possible on Linux, I'm just not sure how to package it. If building a WebGL exporter, I believe it s...

Re: Collaborative CAD platform

Would it read ifc model? Thanks. Not yet. I would have to investigate the IFC format or to find an open source IFC reader (IfcOpenShell ?). This would be quite interesting as I understand IFC as a domain specific Product Data Model based on STEP/EXPRESS. Probably some ideas of IFC could be re-used ...

I am not a programmer, but is what you are doing an open-source project?
Yes, the web platform itself is a fork of Gitea at https://github.com/osv-team/gitea. It uses other projects at https://github.com/osv-team.

Re: Collaborative CAD platform

Sounds ambitious and therefore good luck. P.S. If you are interested likely a contribution directly to FreeCAD code and to improve WebGL viewer/exporter could make sense. As the result i see on the mentioned web site looks good. And therefore if FreeCAD could produce such WebGL exports by default. ...

Re: Collaborative CAD platform

what is the Error 500? I get this error when I display a FreeCAD-file which contains only a mesh. Meshes and ASM3 files are not handled yet. I will try to support meshes. Maybe ASM3 is already stable enough to consider, what do you think? Anyway, I just unzipped an ASM3 FCSTD file, and it seems it ...

Re: Collaborative CAD platform

So one of the use is uploading a FC file and the model can be shown to every people without an installation of FC and/or without the model file? It is supported by three.js? Yes, that's one of the possible uses. The FreeCAD file only has to be pushed to the server, just like you push a code file/pr...

Re: Collaborative CAD platform

Mostly, from this super-alpha v0.001 prototype that is unstable, buggy and super-imperfect (which only merit is to be there), I am trying to gauge if a github-like platform tailored for CAD solves a real-life problem for CAD oriented enthusiasts, engineers and designers that wish to work together (o...

Something went wrong during the conversion from FCSTD format to JSON (for three.js) format. Some case that I did not anticipate...I will investigate.
