I am Phd student in iran: university
I studied those links. since i am iranian, i think google can't accept me, because they obey laws of america an america has been boycotted my country. except this, i'm will be happy to participate at this project.
Sad to know.

But you may do project in similar manner, or may be in better or relaxed manner. We have good community who can guide and review your work.

All the best,

Of course i'm not sure, but i guess. Of course I will continue my work very seriously. Thank you for your attention.

@hardeeprai I also have been saw this project and have been contacted with their author. it seems it's a good place to start!

https://bitbucket.org/lukaszlaba/dxfstructure/wiki/Home

it also has some other projects:

Interesting project. But can't discuss more here. This forum is for FreeCAD and related modules. Can you thing it can be used in FreeCAD?

Anyway, I could not run it on Linux.

Could not install pyqt

pyqt4 (https://www.riverbankcomputing.com/software/pyqt)

[Message]
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pyqt (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for pyqt
[/Message]

Tried with pip install pyqt4
and pyqt

And then tries to execute it:

python /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/dxfstructure/DxfStructure.py

to get error:
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/dxfstructure/pycore/Profile.py",
line 28, in <module>
from strupy.pill import SectionBase, u
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/strupy/pill.py", line
29, in <module>
import strupy.units as u
File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/strupy/units.py", line
39, in <module>
from unum import Unum as __Unum
ImportError: No module named unum
If you are able to run it on Ubuntu (Linux), do tell me solution on my Email: dotorgdotcom @ gmail . com

I think it can be used in FreeCAD as they mentioned in about:

DxfStructure is free software. All you need is any dxf file editor, it can be commercial software like AutoCad but also freeware like DraftSight or even free software like LibreCad.

I have been installed it many years ago, but didn't work with it seriously.

refer to it's installation instruction page:

Very interesting project! Indeed if it "adds" features to an existing dxf file, this might be usable in FreeCAD somehow...

Thanks. As I realized, it adds some features to dxf file and for this it uses special layers and colors for rebars, text , etc and sync texts in various locations. it also capable to show relation between this text with lines. it also counts the number of rebars for given line in prependicular to rebar.

Is any current solver used through FEM workbench has 1D beam element to do plane and frame analysis (which is most commonly used for structural analysis of Steel and Reinforced Concrete frames). I am thinking to use FElt for this purpose.
https://github.com/Sudhanshu-Dubey14/felt
which is an effort to make it to run on latest compilers and hardware.
Original FElt is at: http://felt.sourceforge.net/
added Felt to the list of interesting solvers FEM_Solver
I wish to work on adding FElt as a solver in the FEM workbench.
For that purpose I have tried to understand how other solvers take input and show output in FreeCAD from the source code but that wasn't
much helpful.
So a pointer in the right direction would be really helpful.

Try following this thread on ooFem whereby @bernd mentors how to integrate a solver in to FEM. Also you probably want to start your own thread and perhaps reference it from this thread so people can follow it (to avoid hijacking this thread)

wow thats pretty cool news. Just have a look at this branch ... There a new solver oofem was added. The methods to write the real data where filled with some explizit data for testing purposes. But it should give you an idea ... https://github.com/berndhahnebach/FreeC ... s/femoofem

Also have a look at z88 solver in femsolver directory. Ahh and ask, ask, ask. I would recomend to open a new topic for this.
