Macros for pyramids and polyhedrons

Post by eddyverl » Wed Oct 30, 2019 11:19 am

Hello

A while back I needed some regular shapes for exercises in FreeCAD

I ended up writing macros. With them you can build them in a chosen size.

- Piramids: full of knotted
- Polyhedrons : tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, icosahedron and truncated icosahedron

You can find these macro's on : https://github.com/eddyverl/FreeCad-Pyr ... olyhedrons

Could be good to create the wiki page so the macro can be downloaded through the add-on manager. ;)

Nice macro!

Can I add your macros to the official macro repository or, even better, can you add it yourself by following the few guidelines?

Thanks,
Gaël

OK, I've added them as two macros.

You'!! find them in the Addons Manager under the names Pyramid and Polyhedrons

Hi @eddyverl

As you provide this functionality not only as a macro but as a module, best if you extract the zip archive by default and ask for module inclusion here:

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD-addons

P.S. This way people will find it in Addon manager and will be able to install it without the need to extract the archive.
