SolveSpace parametric 2d/3d CAD returns to Easy

April 22, 2021 — BarryK

This is a great application. I had it in the Pyro-series of EasyOS, and used it to design solar water distillers. Here is the project homepage:

And here are some of my blog posts:

I am planning to sew a custom tent. The only way I am going to get my "perfect tent" is to make it myself. Ahem, anyway that's the idea, and would like to use SolveSpace ...then realised that SolveSpace isn't in the Dunfell-series.

So, have compiled it in OpenEmbedded, and it will be in the next release of EasyOS, expected to be version 2.7.2.

One problem with SolveSpace is there is a learning curve, and I use it so infrequently that I forget how to use it. The homepage has tutorials, so will get back into it quickly.

Note that this is version 3.0, and designs created in 3.x cannot be opened in the 2.x versions. Easy Buster has version 2.3, it is in the Debian DEB repository.
