Test-Driven Development for BRL-CAD NURBS/Brep Boolean Operation[edit]

  • Description: Currently, BRL-CAD has implemented a series of NURBS and Brep operations, and in some cases it works well. But there are many cases to be tested, improved or solved like missing surfaces or solids and optimizing topology of Brep. This project works in Test-Driven Development(TDD), aims to test and develop NURBS/Brep part of BRL-CAD, to ensure correctness of geometry and topology in common and special cases.

BRL-CAD Project site[edit]

  • Description: This project targets redesigning and updating the official site for BRL-CAD, which will add more details to the site related to the organization. The project will be made using the latest technologies like React, Hugo, or other site generators. Another important aspect of the project would be to make this documentation on GitHub more accessible (https://github.com/BRL-CAD/brlcad-docs/).
