[prj] Blender add-on to create technical drawing
I'm Marco, an italian architect and a free software enthusiast. I embraced open source about ten years ago and, obviously, I'm very interested in what this community is achieving. Thank you so much!
In the last years I tried to apply the DevOps principles and tools to architectural practice: I found that this kind of tools and methodology (git, gitlab, scripting automation...) could really help in creating a positive working environment and increase process and design quality.
A very important part of my job is producing technical documentation: in order to reduce the risk of error and lighten the workload I wrote a Blender add-on to get 2d vectorial linked data-rich drawings (in svg format) from the 3d model (created in Blender).
I know that generating drawing from IFC is a crucial issue and some of you is working very hard to solve it: my add-on is not so ambitious (I needed an immediate solution for my everyday work) but I think it could work pretty well and, maybe, someone could find it useful.
If you want to try it you can download it from https://gitlab.com/marzof/prj .
For now it has been tested on linux machine only and it definitively needs a documentation! I hope to find the time to write it down but, for now, you can follow the "Getting started" guide on the README (and you can absolutely write here, or open an issue, to ask question or report some bug).
