The FormIt Glider

Posted in Uncategorized by Tobias Hathorn 4 years ago

Our development team is a diverse and passionate group. We make a practice of 'eating our own dog food' in that we build personal projects in our software. From outhouses to deck chairs  to... gliders! Boris Sergeev is known as a bit of a plane aficionado (a bit of an understatement!). For #FormItFriday he created this model of a 1960-s Polish SZD-24 Foka - right down to the correct wing airfoil (different at the root and the tip). FormIt has matured enough for designing airplanes thanks to the loft tool! Special note - Boris was able to use scripting to modify his airfoil! Yellow Squadron RealThing

Ah... Would be cool to see a hint of possible futures. Looking forward to it. I really want to hook Dynamo up to the cloud. Let's talk.

Sean, We'll see. Full disclosure: we have some internal scripting that we use for creating and running quality tests. It is not yet part of the product roadmap - but perhaps we can do some "teasers" at RTC

OK, I'll bite at the teaser... "able to use scripting" is making my mouth water. When will we learn more? I would very much like to have the ability to experiment ahead of RTC, as I am co-teaching a FormIt lab.
