Frontpanel simulation workbench

Postby dliess » Sat Jul 28, 2018 1:31 am

With this FreeCAD plugin, you can turn your FreeCAD objects into knobs, faders, displays, etc. that you can push/move/turn by your mouse and that provides/receives data to an external application via grpc.

I have one main feature left to implement, then I will do little videos to all the functionalities. Meanwhile you can read the usage description on github wiki.
