AngelCAD v1.3-01 released
« on: 2019-05-30, 16:14:15 »
A new version v1.3-01 of AngelCAD is out, linux and windows binaries available at https://github.com/arnholm/angelcad/releases

1. The new version allows translating an object using a vec3d vector as an alternative to providing the x,y,z values directly. This can be especially convenient when the vector is the result of some calculation.

   vec3d v(100,0,0);
   solid@ object= translate(v)*sphere(50);


2. convenient initializer list construction for pos2d/3d and vec2d/3d has been introduced. For example, to define an array of pos3d objects, one can now write

   array<pos3d@> p = {{0,0,0},{1,0,0},{1,2,0},{1,2,3}};

3. Improved user documentation at https://arnholm.github.io/angelcad-docs/docs/annotated.html

4. A new console application polyfix is now bundled with AngelCAD. This application can be used for repairing some mesh files in STL or other formats, and it can be used for remeshing to allow 'bending' or 'morphing' in AngelCAD. polyfix will be discussed in a separate forum thread.
