regarding your questions about splib (and STLIB): SPLIB basically has to be ported to python 3. For now SofaPython3’s functionality is mostly related to the bindings and scripting. We are slowly populating SPLIB with the functionality it had before. SPLIB is now a part of SP3 and there could eventually be a separate STLIB for…[Read more]
@MA, you’re welcome! Although, I admit, it was a little bit of annoying work ^^
For repairing the mesh of the S-Yarn I used Blender. I could clearly see that there was a hole on one of the ends. I selected the corresponding vertices and created new faces. I think Meshlab is also quite powerful with automated functionality to improve mesh…[Read more]
so, last week I had a look at the issue. I was able to mesh the S-yarn with CGAL, i.e. with the VolumetricMeshGeneration example:
However, I had to follow two steps:
1) Repair the original file, because the mesh had holes in it. Here is the repaired version:
as Damien mentioned, we are working on a functionality to simplify the meshing procedure by scripting Gmsh with python from within Sofa (STLIB). In a few days we will have something (updated) available to the public.
I saw the geometries for the T-Yarn and I’m not sure it will be possible to mesh it. If I understand correctly you…[Read more]
it can be indeed hard to get used to the way software is distributed and built from scratch in Linux. Sorry for the frustration it causes! The team here is working on providing a more user-friendly solution, but as always it takes some time.
Basically, what Damien is saying is that Qt is distributed with Ubuntu (using the…[Read more]
This error seems to indicate you’re still missing a package. It must have slipped through at some point during your installation. Try compiling again after installing it:
sudo apt install qtwebengine5-dev
*edit*: I’m assuming that this will be the missing package, but in the package manager from Ubuntu there are several…[Read more]
Hello @adamzhang, I happen to work on tactile sensing (more generally mechanosensing, actually) and use SOFA to simulate the behavior of my tactile sensor. My sensor is made of silicone, a material that has good properties to be simulated with help of the FEM.
On the one hand, from my experience, I would say that it is possible to simulate…[Read more]
