Nessa visão, a Unidade básica de Saúde (UBS) é um local de acolhimento e aconselhamento, sendo muito mais um local onde se cuida do que... FreeCAD Arch Workbench presentation http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=204 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=204 Wed, 24 Feb 2016 22:11:40 -0300 A video presentation of the Arch workbench of href=http://www.freecadweb.org>FreeCAD that I did last week at href=https://twitter.com/hashtag/ODC2016PN>ODC2016PN How to learn architecture http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=170 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=170 Wed, 06 Jan 2016 23:06:21 -0200 I've heard a couple of people asking this recently, and I like the idea of trying to learn architecture outside of the conventional way, so here are a couple of ideas. This is all just personal opinion, okay? I'm also illustrating this article with works of mine, in no particular order or meaning, just to... How to report a bug http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=164 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=164 Sat, 12 Dec 2015 19:12:22 -0200 One of the coolest thing you get when working with open-source software, is the possibility to report bugs to the developers, and follow the progresses until it gets fixed. Most, if not all open-source software has, somewhere, a bug tracker, which is an online application where you open such a bug report (sometimes called "issue"... Pirituba services center http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=120 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=120 Tue, 22 Sep 2015 22:20:18 -0300 This is a project we did for a small services center in São Paulo. The ground floor hosts three big stores, with different ceiling heights depending on their position on the site and their entrance level, and two upper floors of offices space, with open plan, dividable according to future necessities. This project is... Mixed use, Itu, Brazil http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=114 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=114 Mon, 14 Sep 2015 22:34:22 -0300 This project gathers in a same site three different uses: a residential building, a hotel, and a convention center. The client being a real-estate investor, it was required, as usual in that context, to build as much as possible, in other words, to use the maximal construction area permitted by law. This... About FreeCAD, architecture and workflows http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=96 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=96 Thu, 03 Sep 2015 16:51:52 -0300 Quite some time I didn't post about FreeCAD, but it doesn't mean things have been dead there. One of the important things we've been busy with in the past weeks is the transfer of the FreeCAD code and release files to GitHub. Sourceforge, where all this was hosted before, is unfortunately giving worrying signs of... Preço de software BIM no Brasil http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=95 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=95 Sun, 16 Aug 2015 22:43:33 -0300 Abaixo está uma tabela com preços de software BIM para arquitetura. Incluí aqui somente software que tem suporte ao formato IFC (tanto leitura como gravação). Sem isso, acho que concordamos que não podemos chamar algo de BIM. Também retirei as soluções restritas a um certo tipo de construção (como DDS-CAD). As aplicações abaixo são as... FreeCAD and BIM FAQ http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=76 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=76 Sun, 28 Jun 2015 18:34:40 -0300 A couple of FreeCAD architecture/BIM related questions that I get often: Is FreeCAD ready enough to do serious BIM work? This is a very complex question, and the answer could be yes or no, depending on what's important to you. It of course also depends on what is BIM for you, because clearly enough, there isn't a universal... My FreeCAD talk at FOSDEM 2015 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=37 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=37 Sat, 21 Mar 2015 22:46:06 -0300 This is a video recording of the talk I did at FOSDEM this year. Enjoy! The pdf slides are here. Enjoy! FreeCAD talk at FOSDEM 2015 from Yorik van Havre on Vimeo Old projects, new images http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=26 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=26 Mon, 16 Feb 2015 21:35:20 -0200 We use to make 3D images of old projects of some of our clients, to give their websites a bit of a refresh, and we don't do it for ourselves? No sir, no more! Here is a bit of revamp on two oldies but goodies of our projects, Casa GL and the PACE ONG. ... FreeCAD, Architecture and future http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=22 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2015=22 Tue, 10 Feb 2015 14:15:15 -0200 There is quite some time I didn't write here about FreeCAD and the development of the Architecture module. This doesn't mean it has stopped, but rather that I have temporarily been busy with another project: The Path module, plus there has been my FOSDEM talk, and finally we're on the verge of releasing version 0.15... About panels and blocks - new elements for FreeCAD http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=156 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=156 Sat, 13 Sep 2014 16:57:01 -0300 I've more or less recently been working on two new features for the Architecture workbench of FreeCAD: Panels and furniture. None of these is in what we could call a finished state, but I thought it would be interesting to share some of the process here. Panels are a new type of object, that inherits all... Ideal kitchen? http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=150 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=150 Sat, 23 Aug 2014 18:44:47 -0300 I'm always quite fascinated by medieval-like kitchens, I'd like to have one for myself one day... But until the moment one is rich enough to buy an old medieval farm-castle in France, one must stick with dreaming. I also happened to need a new background for the Inventriode receitas. So (after I saw this amazing... DXF export of FreeCAD Drawing pages http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=125 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=125 Fri, 15 Aug 2014 22:43:54 -0300 I just upgraded the code that exports Drawing pages in FreeCAD, and it works now much better, and much more the way you would expect: Mount your page fully in FreeCAD, then export it to DXF or DWG with the press of a button. Before, doing this would export the SVG code from the Drawing page,... ProjectPier http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=117 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=117 Wed, 13 Aug 2014 21:24:35 -0300 I should really write more about all the little open-source tools we use everyday here in our architecture studio. There are your usual CAD / BIM / 3D applications, of course, that you know a bit of if you follow this blog, but one of the tools that really helps us a lot in our... A bit of FreeCAD BIM work http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=116 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=116 Sat, 09 Aug 2014 02:50:24 -0300 This afternoon I did some BIM work in FreeCAD for a house project I'm doing with Ryan. We're using this as a test platform for IFC roundtripping between Revit and FreeCAD. So far the results are mixed, lots of information get lost on the way obviously, but on the other hand I'm secretly pretty happy... FreeCAD Spaces http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=110 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=110 Tue, 05 Aug 2014 19:36:30 -0300 I just finished to give a bit of polish to the Arch Space tool of FreeCAD. Until now it was a barely geometric entity, that represents a closed space. You can define it buy building it from an existing solid shape, or from selected boundaries (walls, floors, whatever). Now I added a bit of visual goodness.... Prefeitura de Belo Horizonte http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=106 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=106 Tue, 29 Jul 2014 01:29:47 -0300 This is a project we did for a href=http://portalpbh.pbh.gov.br/pbh/ecp/comunidade.do?app=concursocentroadministrativo>competition for the new city hall of Belo Horizonte (Brazil). It didn't win (The link shows the winning entries), but we are pretty happy about the project anyway. The full presentation boards are at the bottom of this article, as well as the blender model. Below is... FreeCAD release 0.14 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=80 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2014=80 Mon, 21 Jul 2014 22:07:19 -0300 This is certainly a bit overdue, since the official launch already happened more than two weeks ago, but at last,here it goes: The 0.14 version of FreeCAD has been released! It happened a long, long time after 0.13, about one year and a half, but we're decided to not let that happen again next time,...
