Topic: Presentation

Hi guys.
An amazing program. I'm loving it. Congratulations.
I'm interested in plugging facilities for "imaginative uses".
I've a little bit of experience with python code, and I'm starting to learn c++, qt and cmake. No previous experience with qmake.
You could find me in https://gitlab.com/damianCaceres
Thank you.

Re: Presentation

Hi Damian,

thanks and welcome.
What do you mean by that "imaginative uses"?

About your Gitlab : "This user has a private profile"

Re: Presentation

Certainly there is a problem with my gitlab account. All my repositories are public, but there is one of them which doesn't allow the access, except to me of course.  I don't understand it.
My apologies. I'll solve it and thank you for the advertisement.

What am I imaging?

I'm writing a FreeCAD module or Workbench in order to draw buildings description which could be exported to OpenStudio, initially using the swig python bindings of OpenStudio and recently with direct connection in c++.
I've half done the constructive side, building, buildingstory or floors, spaces, surfaces, subsurfaces, shadows, etc. And fine.

But now I'm starting to do HVAC side, nodes and components, which is more complicated. And I'm feeling that a program like QElectroTech could be the correct election to draw some circuits, one additional qt editor for  OpenStudio object properties, and finally an exporter to OpenStudio format.

I don't know if the explained is too much imagine, but the next months I would like to study this option.

Thank you

Re: Presentation

the repository is

https://gitlab.com/damianCaceres/energy-workbench

It must be accessible, but certainly I don't domain gitlab.

Re: Presentation

Great project, but a QET exporter to OpenStudio seems difficult and complicated work, but we will be be very happy if you could code this bridge to OpenStudio. ;-)

Re: Presentation

Thanks for the warning. For this reason I comment before starting.
In any case I introduce QElectroTech in my usual work.

Re: Presentation

Have you saw the Python plugin Qet_tb_generator code, is can be an example to start, it extract in XML .qet project files conductor path and attributes for generate and draw terminalblock diagram?

Re: Presentation

You 're also welcome if you want to contribute and add new features on QET sources code. ;-)
By example like "Transformation matrix" for element editor.

Re: Presentation

I have installed terminalblock generator and I've compiled the dxf importer.
I've used transformation matrix for geometric operations, from a cone to an elliptical cone for instance, with OpenCascade.
I'm tuned with github source mirror. The next months I'll read the collaborations rules.
Good bye.

Re: Presentation

Maybe if you have time and motivation to write a Workbench QET |-> FreedCad ?, Some guys from QET have been asking for it for a long time.

Re: Presentation

Good morning
The main FreeCAD's module for 2D geometric staff is the Draft Workbench. There we have a lot of additional tools and possibilities.
The last two years this draft workbench has suffered huge structural reform works. Thanks to @vocx and @yorik, among others. They are not finished. At this moment I would not know which modules we must import ... I would wait a little bit ... perhaps one year?
Please, could some one to enclose in the road map this topic "Exchange with FreeCAD"?.

Good night,

Re: Presentation

Hello, new here, I found QElectroTech and I love this project, I am migrating since AutoCAD Electrical and I want to stay here.

... as mentioned in another post my wish to create an integration BIM with QElectroTech, create a workflow, and help the community to automate their work.

https://community.osarch.org/

this is a new forum than support BIM open source software, you are welcome to add QET to the OSArch wiki and please keep the great work than you are doing.

my main suggestion is to support import-export to IFC, XML, and CSV files formats, with that QET might integrate other workflows without much work.
