someday, hopefully this is open source paraglider design software
Clone the git-repo first:
git clone https://github.com/hiaselhans/OpenGlider.git
Install using Pip:
cd OpenGlider pip install -e .
Or manually install all dependencies (using distro-repos, easy_install or pip)
If you want to permanently install link it to the python packages or install with setup.py
python2 setup.py develop
we use python2 as vtk is not yet available for python3.
Every module inside openglider has a README where the functionality is documented. Please have a look at the base module.
Unittests and Visual Tests
To run all unittests, run this from the main directory:
Or use -a to also run visual tests
While still being in an early status, here is some little screenshots to see the progress:
The plan is to build on:
python ( http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/ )
OpenFoam obj-file CFD export ( http://www.openfoam.com/)
ecplicit non linear FEM (membrane, truss) for line forces and deformation analysis (https://www.github.com/booya-at/paraFEM)
freecad (Open-Source Cad, written in c++ with python API (www.freecadweb.org/)
VTK (visual toolkit, for 3d-output: http://www.vtk.org/)
Code_Aster FEM export ( http://www.code-aster.org ) - maybe calculix as we've done already, but it does currently not support membrane elements)
It will take some time, if you want to help, feel free to do so!
Using some older code, we already created a few prototypes which can be seen on www.booya.at
