early-stage b-rep CAD kernel, written in Rust

Weekly Release - UI Week

Last week saw lots of small, user-visible improvements to the app. Anti-aliasing, various fixes to the GUI, replacing weird crashes with good error messages, and maybe most significantly, the ability to load a model from within the app, instead of having to provide it as a command-line argument (contributed by @erenoku).

Meanwhile my work on advancing the core CAD features is trucking along, although at a slower pace than hoped (isn't it always 😄). As a reminder, my main priority is the implementation of the union operation (#42), which is currently blocked by a bug (#1162). I've been making some progress on improving the validation infrastructure in the kernel, which should allow me to attack the bug itself soon.


Fornjot is supported by @webtrax-oz, @lthiery, @ahdinosaur, @Yatekii, @martindederer, @hobofan, @thawkins, @bollian, @rozgo, @reivilibre, and my other awesome sponsors. Thank you!

If you want Fornjot to be sustainable long-term, please consider supporting me too.

End-user improvements

Improvements to Fornjot and its documentation that are visible to end users.

Ecosystem improvements

Improvements to Fornjot components that are relevant to developers building on top of those. These have an indirect effect on end users, through fixed bugs and improved robustness.




Internal Improvements

Improvements that are relevant to developers working on Fornjot itself.
