A New Materials System

Last week Alexan­dre Prok­ou­dine and Dave Carter pub­lished an arti­cle at the Ond­sel Blog called “FreeCAD Needs A Bet­ter Mate­ri­als Sys­tem” — we at the FPA could­n’t agree more! The arti­cle gives a great overview of the cur­rent state of the mate­ri­als sys­tem in FreeCAD, and the things that a new mate­ri­als sys­tem needs to address. Fur­ther, we’d love to see devel­op­ers apply­ing for FPA fund­ing to work on this project. The entire pur­pose of the FPA is to help FreeCAD devel­op­ment, and this is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty for some devel­op­ers to get paid for work­ing on the soft­ware. If you are inter­est­ed in work­ing on this project, please reach out to a mem­ber of the FPA for more infor­ma­tion about apply­ing for funding.
