Community Bonding Period work

  • Working on Glade and follow some tutorial to get my hand on it.
  • Understand some primitives and find a way to export them.
  • Start studying about POV-Ray macros.

Coding Period

Week 1( Export Part )

25 May 
  • Understand particale and take reference from other converters

I understood how the coordinates of vertices of particale are stored. Now I'm working on exporting the vertices and then move on to export into POV-Ray format.

26 May 
  • Pushed one commit to github.
  • Export coordinates of Particale successfully.

My ubuntu got crashed so I have to reinstall it. I will be compiling BRL-CAD after that I am on track again.

27 May 
  • Export particale but requires to fix errors.

Today I was busy in my exam. But in evening I got time to export particale.

28 May 
  • Done exporting of Particale primitive.
  • Testing it with POV-Ray.

I am now working on linuxcnc. Starts from backslash task for it.

29 May 
  • Working on linuxCNC. Search related to backslash.
  • Taking other softwares as refrence.
30 May 
  • Fix some error in POV-Ray export.
  • Working on LinuxCNC, taking help from Youtube videos. Discuss with Morley

about backslash.

31 May 
  • Just search about other possible primitives that are not in proposal.

Week 2( Export ell )

1 June 
  • Found where the coordinates are stored.
  • Export those coordinates simply.
  • Working on other possible primitives( not in proposal ).
2 June 
  • Compare and test the ellipse formed by BRL-CAD and POV-Ray.
  • Found some more primitives that I can export.
3 June 
  • Export ellipse.
  • Working on rotation of ellipse.
4 June 
  • Was Busy in traveling.
  • Just looked into some ways to rotate ellipse.
5 June 
  • Export ell successfully
6 June 
  • Start linuxcnc
  • Cloning and Compiling on my new system
7 June 
  • Compile Linuxcnc successfully
  • Know how to use it.
