I’ve been working on some Ruby gems for procedurally generating geometry and then exporting it to all of the various file formats. It’s like OpenSCAD or ImplicitCAD, but using a Ruby DSL instead of a custom language. The idea is to be able to write the code once and then generate whatever file formats end up being needed so that you’re not locked into one format, or vendor. It also makes it easier to manage the files in a version control system. So far, I can only export to SketchUp and DXF. I’m working on STEP next.
If anyone wants to give it a try, let me know and I can help you get started.
Edit: Here’s the toplevel repository on GitHub: https://github.com/bfoz/engineering
I know, I know, the documentation is terrible and I have a lot left to do. I’m happy to answer questions and help anyone give it a go.
No public wish lists :(
