server issue


The ISP is currently having some network routing problem and, consequently, our server is unreachable. 
Hopefully access should be restored soon, but the ISP is working on it and I anticipate access will be
restored soon.  We have a support request tracking this.

Cheers!
Sean

Difficulties with implementing a vrml-g converter

Hello

     I have been looking at the Freewrl code for some time now and
have been able to retrieve the node in the vrml world but the main
problem i have is  handling orientations like translation, rotation
and even vrml primitives(since i can only get their dimension but have
no idea how to convert to polygon). I have no problem working with
indexfaceset since they already have the vertex and faces which could
be passed to bot like with ply-g. I have tried asking for help on the
freewrl mailing list but the most help i have gotten are directives to
the web3d site and also other cad software with x3d/vrml support like
blender and whitedune. I am having trouble progressing with the work
because of my limited knowledge of computer graphics and also having
to deal with school work. I would like to get some help in other to
progress.

Cheers
konrad

Visual Studio Community Edition


FYI, Microsoft is now providing Visual Studio nearly unfettered to non-enterprise users:

http://techcrunch.com/2014/11/12/microsoft-makes-visual-studio-free-for-small-teams/?ncid=rss&cps=gravity

This replaces looks like it will replace Visual Studio Express.  Who is going to be the first to see if our
trunk compilation succeeds on the new version? :)

with Docbook and  brlcad style sheet. I also used brlcad stylesheet to
represent the information regarding the about us page. So please check
my work and give me some reviews.

I have not made patch file because this is addition of all new code
and there is set of four files which make a complete wordpress plugin.

I uploaded my plugin on github. Here is  link

GCI 2014 application entered


There was indeed substantial interest and sufficient mentors, so a GCI application was submitted.  Thank
you for the overwhelming response!  More details on mentoring later.

To set expectations, I will not be surprised if we don't get selected this year.  It’s our turn for veteran
rotation, i.e., to not get selected because we’ve participated several years in a row (same goes for
GSoC).  However, we have preparation work regardless.  We need any and all hands urgently; time sensitive.

A few things to get in place before the end of November:

1) Convert main website to WordPress and new theme.
2) Review and apply/reject all pending patches.
3) Define more GCI tasks.  More on this later.

Multiple people have been working the website from different angles.  Jacob, can it be brought to
completion this month?  Even minimal works for me.  It’s more important that the new site display info
about BRL-CAD (main features and wiki data), not so much our existing News blog that hasn’t been updated
in a year.  Hitesh, how’s your documentation module coming along?  Who has the time and experience to see
this through within the next two weeks?

Reviewing patches is probably the most work but the most needed.  Plus, ANYONE can help.  Review any pending
patch (that you didn’t author and that doesn’t already have a reviewer’s comment) and see if it
works against trunk.  Leave a comment/feedback if it works and has no issues.  If it’s an old patch that
doesn’t apply, update it so it applies cleanly.  If there is a blatant problem, leave feedback.  Note that
you don’t need commit access to do any of this, but performing reviews can help you get commit access yourself.

I’d really like to see (via wiki or e-mail) a list of 2-hour tasks for the OGV, Benchmark, and Materials
Database projects.  They also need to get set up on brlcad.org for production use.  If they are well-defined
and appropriately scoped, I’d very much like to include them in our list of GCI tasks.  We also need some
cross-pollination tasks that pertain to OpenSCAD, LibreCAD, and STEPcode.  But really, the priority

GCI 2014? Response needed ASAP.


How do folks feel about participating in GCI again this year?

We need at least six people willing to mentor.  At least six that will voice commitment to reviewing and
responding to GCI activity within a 12 hour timeframe, approximately an hour a day at least one day a week.

The deadline to apply is Monday, so I need responses immediately (before Monday).  If you’re not reading
this e-mail until after the weekend, you can still become a mentor.  Either way, please send me a quick
e-mail and how many “hours” you are willing to offer for responding to GCI comments and submissions.

Qualification for being a GCI mentor is lower than that for GSoC.  Commit access is nice but not required, you
just need broad familiarity or adeptness at figuring out how to help them.  You need to be able to answer
questions, to review their work, and to provide feedback on a variety of tasks.  The participants are very
young, so the guidance is usually simple.

If you want to be a mentor, please 1) send me an e-mail now and then 2) read and update
http://brlcad.org/wiki/Deuces to remove completed tasks and add more.  We need a lot more (each mentor
needs to add at least 10).

Cheers!
Sean

Google cardboard to view geometry ?

Hi all,

Coming back from GSOC reunion I just got to try out the google cardboard
they gave us, and I find it actually very interesting !

For those who were not there, this is what I'm talking about:

https://cardboard.withgoogle.com/

It makes a VR headset out of your android smartphone, you can (cheaply)
build it on your own, alternatively there are kits available too (try
"google cardboard" on amazon).

The first thought I had: how cool would it be to see my BRL-CAD geometry
as virtual reality through such a head-set ?

Did any of you try anything like that, or had some thoughts how to make
that happen for BRL-CAD ?

If it would be me, I would skip QT and go for VR + some game controller
for the next generation GUI :-)

The ultimate thing would be to get kinect connected and make it possible
to edit geometry through body/hand movements ;-)

Anybody else thinking that would be cool ?

Cheers,
Csaba
