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.
@dliess I just love the fact that your necessity and want was greater than the daunting task of coding such a thing. Very inspiring! Thank you for your work and expanding the horizon of this FreeCAD Engine (as @microelly2 calls it). Please continue to update us about your progress!
