Manifold library (CAD kernel) and FreeCAD ?

Post by Elalish »

I just released my open-source computational geometry library, Manifold: https://twitter.com/EmmettLalish/status ... 2286446593

It's not your average CAD kernel: triangle meshes instead of NURBS, but it's numerically reliable at keeping everything manifold and it's fast and parallelized. I also built in a smooth interpolation system for refining faceted triangle meshes into curves. I'm looking for users & collaborators; please check out the project on Github: https://github.com/elalish/manifold

Thanks!

Could be interesting for stl editing which seems to be a common usecase for hobbyist nowadays, perhaps some day this could be integrated in mesh workbench
