Using conda:

Code: Select all

conda create --name <env_name> freecad openglider  -c openglider -c freecad/label/dev -c conda-forge 
to run freecad:

Code: Select all

conda activate <env_name>
FreeCAD
For conda install the latest version of miniconda (currently python3.7):
https://docs.conda.io/en/latest/miniconda.html

For help on how to use conda, best to have a look at the docs available:
https://docs.conda.io/en/latest/
or search for a video tutorial

other packagemanager:
If you want to install on linux distro. Best to have a look at the dependency section of the library and install the libraries with system package-manager. https://github.com/booya-at/OpenGlider/ ... quires.txt
Once done clone the openglider library and install it:

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/booya-at/OpenGlider
cd OpenGlider
pip install -e --no-deps .
But this way some features are not enabled (mainly some meshing tools and flow-simulation).

If someone is interested in testing or developing I can give instructions on how to install OpenGlider and this workbench.

It looks like it is a very useful and nice Workbench!
I had Interest to play with this..
But to install looks for me a bit difficult..
I had many happy Time under Paragliders and now more under Hanggliders..

This workbench seems to be interesting for quite a lot of people. Should it be integrated in the Addon manager?

Not possible to due difficult (compiled) dependencies (mainly parabem, meshpy). We provide easy installation with conda. In my mind this is a good compromise between maintainability and simplicity to install.

Not really, but we are planning to release one of the designs mentioned in this topic.

Interesting..
The Software makes a good look for work, when it is easyer to install or when I'm having some Time, I will test.
