Hey SOFA community!
In late March 2017, the SOFA Technical Committee #3 takes place in Strasbourg! This is the opportunity for all users and developers to provide active feedback. You can share with us:
- your experience,
- your expectations,
- and your contributions!
To do so, just reply to this thread.
If you are interested to join this committee, please contact us.

Please, finish the “Main principles” documentation!
I think that it will be nice to have some kind of tool to look for a component and get feedback about the available templates and the data names for the .scn file.
I know that with the Modeler you can do this, but I think that a lighter application to just search for a component and getting the information about that component will be nice. There’s no need for all the extra tools available in the Modeler (launch sofa, tutorials…)
I dont know if SOFA already has multithread support in the core, but a task scheduler mechanism would be great. Just schedule tasks for updating maps, computing forces, whatever, with their dependencies during graph traverse and run afterwards in parallel
Thanks for building sucha a great tool. Prototyping new algorithms is easier with SOFA 😉28 February 2017 at 0 h 35 min #8722
Thank you so much for your feedback!
That’s most valuable to us.
Improving the doc: you are perfectly right.
An application for browsing and sorting SOFA component : you’re right again. We are currently completing the work of separating the Tutorials from the Modeler. Next step, simplify and improve the Modeler (as you described above).
Multithreading SOFA: good news a work started on this with an active developer. Moreover, as you can see from this GitHub discussion, some work already started. Stay tuned.
Thank you for being so active in the community Juan.
Any other remarks from anyone else ?28 February 2017 at 9 h 38 min #8728
it would be great to have viscous models,
viscous-elastic (standard solid) and creep (similar to metals,
time hardening, strain hardening).
Perfect, would be to have tendons (with prestressing).

Thank you very much for the feedback as well ! Indeed, it would be very interesting. I think some private work has been done about it in the past. We will raise this topic to see what was done and if any partner would be interested to join this idea.
Did you start any implementation?

I have the procedures in the programs that are written by myself.
These are f77/f90 procedures.
Now, I still work on the model creation of
several composite cells that are colliding.
My latest thread is “compiling_AdvancedTimer” in the subject.
In fact, these are some problems with ogl.

Thanks for all infos Elek.
If anyone wishes to share further input or expectations, please fill free to post a new reply!

J-3 before the STC#3!!
Please do not hesitate to share with us your latest achievements in vidéo, contributions and expectations around SOFA! The consortium will make sure to show and share them with all our developers.
To attend the scientific and technical committee, please contact us.
