very nice example how to get interactive models inside the 3d scene.

:o :shock:
Do you have it rigged up to the real thing ??? That would be amazing

I have reached my english-limits :) what do you mean by 'rigged up to the real thing'?

That's project are awesome.
Do you have a video of the Ableton Push 2?

In other words: Do you have your simulation set so that it drives (changes settings) in a real device? (= an "Ableton Push2")

I can imagine this used as a way to change parameters in anything drawn in FreeCAD. => Live sketches and drawings.

My original intention was to develop a midi-controller/sequencer application for the raspberry pi(using qml/c++) and use the real push2 device as the user interface.
Since I travel a lot, and I did not want to take the push2 with me, I thought I could develop my application against a simulation of the push, so I wrote this FpSimulation addon, and I only have to change a flag when I build my c++ application, so I can switch between real hw and simulation.
So to the question " Do you have your simulation set so that it drives (changes settings) in a real device?":
- Theoretically, it is possible, but its not directly done by the freecad-plugin, you have to write an application that connects to the plugin and proxies the data to the real device and back.

Real HW or simulation?
