Electronics, Robotics and me
Recently i stumbled over the Online CAD Onshape. I immediately fell in love, because it is browser based (so it can easily be used on Macs and Linux) and it is free for public models (and a small number of private models too). It is a parametric CAD tool, so it is more in the Solidworks range than in the Rhino3D area.
After some testing, i decided to redraw some existing parts, to spot differences how i develop parts with my Rhino3D package.
To summarize everything up: I love it, i will use it in the future and it gives me a perfect Reason for buying a iMac Retina and a iPad Pro.
Here screenshots from the two models which you can also access online. As a downside you have to create a (free) account first, there is no way for i.e. embedding the model in my website at the moment.
I started to learn Swift 2.0, an how to integrate with C. Therefore i have created a small Swift-C Interoperabilty project, which can be found on github.
As soon as i will start to wrap some C/C++ Libs, more examples will be added.
There was also a nice Swift compiler crash, which you can test with your environment too, just clone my github project, uncomment the line leading to the compiler crash and comment the correct line.
I had a Wordpress installation till now. But Wordpress has some disadvantages:
So i decided to change it to a static generated Page back again. I tested a bunch of Website generators, and that is what i am using now:
On my Mac i already use GnuPG a lot (basically all my messages are signed, and some of them encrypted). But because nowadays i do a good amount of work on my iPad an iPhone, is had to search for a GnuPG solution on iOS too.
All programs where tested on iOS 8.1.2 with a iPhone 6 and a iPad Mini Retina. All programs except NouveauPG are Universal Apps and optimized for different screen sizes.
