The Resynthesizer Plugin Suite contains a practical tool for Gimp that allows you to remove the objects in your pictures after covering them with the adjacent elements. In the post I describe a Linux installation procedure of the version 2, by compiling the source from GitHub or by executing an executable and an example of its use.
From a discussion on Super User, I have discovered an awesome tool that helps you to locate the largest files or directories in your computer, just typing a single command line on a bash terminal. I have only added some code to create a text file without the annoying message "Permission denied". In the article there is also a list of the most famous analyzers for linux.
Recently I have read that a local municipality has finally unblocked an old urban regeneration project in which I worked for many aspects. One of these was the pipe network analysis for that disused area. Fortunately I used PVnet and the job was simple. In this article I introduce this open source software and EPANET2, because its computational engine is used by the first one and it is more complete and powerful. Besides I show you that they can be installed in a Linux system using Wine.
After importing DXF in Blender, some problems start immediately because the common commands present in any CAD don't exist in Blender, or simply aren't so simply to use as in the classical drawing software. Where is the offset? How can I put the quotas? And so on... Fortunately there is PROCAD that helps the users to fix some aspects of own imported sketch. Let's see how install it and translate the UI in English.
I have tried to adapt my old Python application written for S60 smartphones into a modern webapp which should be able to work in any recent internet browser. Therefore I have used jQuery Mobile to convert it and it was very easy, nevertheless my terrible programming skills. Below there is my final app and some description.
If you need a powerful and versatile 3D software not only for modelling and texturing but also for creating interactive applications, you should have to try Blender. Sometimes its interface can appear very different and problematic than typical software, as AutoCAD for example. But with a little of settings and of course patience and time, it's possible to overcome the initial shock and to import own 2D DXF file in this program. Let's see how.
In my opinion SSAP2010 is an interesting freeware to verify slope stability and despite of other commercial softwares, it considers some inhomogeneities for example: soils, groundwater at different levels, different surfaces and stability elements (wall, sheet pile, etc.).
When I want to insert a 3D image in my articles, I make many attempts to find the best compromise between view and disposition of the scene, sometimes without getting discrete results and hiding particulars. Well, I should insert the real 3D object and give to the user the possibility to control it, shouldn't I?
I will describe elements characterizing step by step the conversion of my storm sewer program into a web application fully available within any modern browser. It will also be equipped by a convenient graphical interface and by the powerful new features. Here I will insert the progress of works that will lead to the final release of this webapp.
Simple programm written in a QuickBasic language and compiled in FreeBASIC, which allows you to verify an horizontal grit chamber. Once you have put the geometric section and the incoming flow, it computes using elementary formulation the shorter length of this hydraulic device.
