I’m looking for an older version of SOFA where I can be sure that the Flexible plugin does not use deprecated API’s.
I’m quite sure .scn files in the shapeFunction and demos don’t work from at least 15.03 onward.
I cannot find older versions of the code base, can someone point me at older revisions? Looks like I need to go back to code from 2012-ish because I would like to reproduce the results in “Sparse Meshless Models of Complex Deformable Solids” by running the .scn files from the demo folder. This was published in 11/12 I think.

Older versions of SOFA are available as both sources and binaries.
To get an old version of the sources, all you need to do is to checkout the proper branch corresponding the version of SOFA you need. E.g.: git clone -b vXX.XX https://github.com/sofa-framework/sofa.git sofa/v17.12/src/ replacing vXX.XX by the exact version like v16.08
To get an old version of the binaries, you can get them directly from GitHub : https://github.com/sofa-framework/sofa/releases
Flexible should be compatible with 2015 and even 2016 version of SOFA.
An even better version would be that you update the Flexible plugin, if you are using and needing it. Your assistance would be much appreciated.

I don’t think the available binaries and branches are old enough. It appears to be broken in 2015 SOFA, I have tested the shapeFunction directory examples in this revision too. I have a matrix of what works and what doesn’t if you are interested.
I need a very old version that is not on the github. The code seems to be from 2012. I would guess circa 2012 or so is a good bet.
It is my intention to update the Flexible plugin, but I need known good results to validate against since the google tests pass even though the plugin is clearly broken.
Can you help?

I would like to correct myself. It seems that the plugin does mostly work, its just quite hard to tell because many of the example .scn files are broken or are not super intuitive to understand for a newcomer.

I am really sorry, since I am not using Flexible myself, it is somehow complicated for me to support on this open SOFA plugin. Is there a specific scene you would like to make work?

Hi Hugo, thank you for being so helpful.
I would like to reproduce the results shown in This Flexible Plugin Demo.
I see the .scn files for the first few examples (up to and including the steak), but I don’t know how to generate or observe the compliance colour maps that are demonstrated. Could you provide instructions on how to reproduce the results in this demo video?
