Collada support in FreeCAD
I just found this interesting piece of software called pycollada
and used it to make FreeCAD
able to import collada files. The support is very basic, only simple geometry is imported. No materials, no components or whatsoever. But it is already pretty handy for a serie of uses. The image below shows an imported collada file generated by the BIMserver
(as a little appetizer, waiting for true IFC support)...
