LibreCAD and GSoC 2014 – Under the umbrella of BRL-CAD

This year LibreCAD will be participating in GSoC (Google Summer of Code).

We have tried to get into GSoC in 2012 and 2013 aswell, but unfortunately we where not picked by the good guy’s at google. This year we have been asked by our friend’s at BRL-CAD! Not only did they ask us, but they also asked OpenSCAD and STEPcode.

The main goal of this collaboration is to bring the project’s closer together and hopefully in future we can have these tools collaborate better. Not only on a human level, but also on a integration level for these projects.

For GSoC 2014 we unfortunately will have a lower set a projects due to the lack of resources on our end. Our GSoC 2014 is located overhere : http://wiki.librecad.org/index.php/GSoC_2014. If you have any question’s please don’t hesitate to talk to use on freenode on our #LibreCAD channel or if you want to talk to our umbrella organisation BRL-CAD on #brlcad.

Or send a mail to use through the forum or directly!

Cheers,
R. van Twisk

  1. Hi—I have been learning to use your (excellent) program my way. ie. By generating a cheat sheet to aid my old brain and its lousy short term memory. I would like to think I could contribute to your efforts. perhaps others could benifit from my endeavors. However I would need a contact for some help to get over some of the bumps in the road that I have already encountered.
