The Arch Panel
in the Arch WB gained two new side-tools: Arch Panel Cut
and Arch Panel Sheet
. Their main objective is to create DXF cut sheets of panel constructions like the Wikihouse project
. The workflow is very simple, you design your stuff with Arch Panels, then, the Arch Panel Cut tool produces a 2D view of these panels in the XY plane, then, you can combine several Arch Panel Cuts in an Arch Panel Sheet, the final result you can produce are DXF files like this, which are identical to the ones produced by the Wikihouse project:
With this, FreeCAD is now totally geared to build wikihouse projects like this from A to Z:
I am in the process of writing a tutorial
that explains how to port existing Wikihouse files to FreeCAD.
Of course there is much room for improvements, we could think of using the Path WB to directly output Gcode from the cut sheets, it would also be interesting to start building a library of basic wikihouse components, etc... But so far this workflow more or less reproduces the existing Wikihouse workflow, I thought it important to start from there.
Here is a test file I'm working on: https://github.com/uncreatednet/wikilab ... dulo.fcstd
