#urbansketching in the Bixiga district in São Paulo
#urbansketching day at Universidade Cruzeiro do Sul in São Paulo
#urbansketching day! The busy pedestrian area downtown São Paulo
#urbansketching day! At the Banco de São Paulo, which is not a bank anymore, but the incredible spaces from 1935 are still there intact.
Short #FreeCAD development update! Been working on a new feature that allows you to highlight drafting objects and move / transform individual vertices or edges.
This is in contrast to #Revit, which doesn't know what a vertex is, and doesn't allow you to use a single profile to edit multiple objects. (In fact, the axis profile for a Revit wall is completely invisible!)
I've written an article about how to parse #opensource #architecture #BIM #IFC files using #IfcOpenShell and Python. It shows some code examples on how to access things like attribute data, IFC types, property sets, quantities, and geometry.
If you use #FreeCAD and are an architect, or work in the architecture / engineering / construction industry, please promote the use of IFC as an open-data format!
#urbansketching at the "padoca"
#FreeCAD #FEM example in 60 seconds
#FreeCAD importer for #b3d updated for Blender 2.80! Still need to figure out how to add transparency... https://gist.github.com/yorikvanhavre/680156f59e2b42df8f5f5391cae2660b
