The Pip Install went good, but I can't find in freecad-workbench glider? Any tips?
1) Someone can explane step by step how to install the add on?
2) Is there any other app to install to make it work?
Thank you very very much...
I'd like to help develop this stuff...but first id like to make it work on my computer....

Installing with conda is the simplest way. It should work on mac, linux and windows.

@looo is there a section to the workbench README to add these instructions on how to install conda? (it could be in an optional collapsed div)

As said it's more difficult to install other than with conda. So if you really want to try this workbench, best to use conda.
- install conda
- make yourself comfortable with environments
- install all the utilities with:

Code: Select all

conda create openglider openglider freecad.python freecad -c openglider -c freecad/label/dev -c conda-forge


I can't help more, sry.

WOW :shock:
This is crazy. Too bad I'm not paragliding. And if I did I'm not sure if I'd construct my own glider (to the grave?)
But anyways. Very impressive
