Title: A new CAD for Linux
Post by: tercoide on May 24, 2021, 02:10:35 PM
Hi there, I'm Martin. A software developer, among other things.

Looking for people interested in developing a CAD software for Linux.

PM if you are interested. This is what is done so far (see atatchment).

Questions:
1. What language are you using?
2. Library or general coding?
3. General tools you are using (compiler, IDE/build system, etc)?


BTW, warning: this post may move to another sub-forum.

Sure, move it where it belongs.

I use Gambas, it is a sort of Visual Basic but more powerfull. It has its own IDE and compiler.

Here is the proyect and repo:

What is most needed is not actual code but all that makes a piece of software good. Take note that this is FOSS, so I'm not hiring for a salary.

I am develping a new CAD software for Linux, wich is in a very advanced stage. It is made in Gambas3 an complete IDE and compiler. Similar to VB, but more powerfull I beleive.

Still a lot of work todo, so this is a "Help Wanted" post. Did this in the wrong section, so posting again here. A screenshot is at:

Hello tercoide,
FYI: I merged the "old" thread with this one. I also modified your post above slightly (sorry).

What are you using as a base?  Qcad?  LibreCAD?

We wrote it from scratch.

A lot of work there! Nice job.

Gambas looks like what Microsoft VB should have been :)

Like many, I moved out of VB when they redesigned completely into .NET
