As always, I'll be describing mostly what I've been doing myself, but many other people are very actively working on FreeCAD too, much more is going on. The best...

Site As a follow-up of href="http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=269">this post, several new features have been added to the href="http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Arch_Site">Arch Site object.

Again not much visually significant FreeCAD development to show this week, so here is another interesting subject, that I started looking at in an earlier post. We architects should really begin to learn about GIS. GIS stands for Geographic information system and begins to... Obtendo mapas de São Paulo http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=270 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=270 Mon, 26 Sep 2016 20:58:35 -0300 No FISL do ano passado, ouvimos uma palestra sobre o geosampa bem interessante. Pouco tempo depois, o site já estava funcionando, e acabei de dar uma olhada agora, está ficando impressionante. Basicamente, é um site mantido pela prefeitura de São Paulo, que disponibiliza de maneira aberta e gratuita mapas de todo qual tipo da cidade. Veja... Working with terrain in #FreeCAD http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=269 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=269 Sun, 25 Sep 2016 22:43:26 -0300 Since I have not much new FreeCAD-related development to show this week, I'll showcase an existing feature that has been around for some time, which is an external workbench named geodata, programmed by the long-time FreeCAD community member and guru Microelly2. That workbench is part of the FreeCAD addons collection, which is a collection of additional... #FreeCAD news and Arch workflow http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=262 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=262 Sat, 17 Sep 2016 21:23:51 -0300 So, let's continue to post more often about FreeCAD. I'm beginning to organize a bit better, gathering screenshots and ideas during the week, so I'll try to keep this going. This week has seen many improvements, specially because we've been doing intense FreeCAD work with OpeningDesign. Like everytime you make intense use of FreeCAD or... Unidade Básica de Saúde Riacho Fundo http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=230 http://yorik.uncreated.net/guestblog.php?2016=230 Tue, 03 May 2016 21:29:40 -0300 Esse projeto foi pensado para contribuir com a nova política de humanização do SUS.

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...

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...

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...

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.

No sir, no more! Here is a bit of revamp on two oldies but goodies of our projects, Casa GL and the PACE ONG. ...
