AngelCAD on Thingiverse
« on: 2019-07-20, 10:39:15 »
This thread shall contain pointers to use of AngelCAD found on Thingiverse (or other similar sites). The idea is to show practical use of the software.

Of course, you can always use a generic search for items tagged with AngelCAD http://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=AngelCAD

A concrete example is the remixed "Finger Flobber" I made with AngelCAD http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3758434 . In this case an original STL was converted to OFF format using AngelCADs "polyfix" utility, and then imported and modified. See the *.as source file http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3758434/files for details.

I designed a new wall adapter using AngelCAD for the TP-link Deco M9+ mesh router
See https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4441436

The AngelCAD source code for this adapter model is available there too.

Another search engine - Yeggi.com -  picks up 3d models from sites other than thingiverse. a search for AngelCad gives seven results, all for thingiverse, however. Not sure what you need to do to get Angelcad listed as a design tool on Thingiverse, because there are in fact about 21 models for Angelcad there.

Although AngelCAD being listed as a design tool on Thingiverse would be nice I don't see any need to use a lot of energy to make it happen. If it it listed as a desgn tool it is because a sufficient numbers of users start using the software, and not the other way around.

These days Thingiverse seems less imprtant than before. There used to be useful statistics about what people were viewing, but it looks like that almost brought their servers to their knees, so they removed it. That makes it harder to find popular designs, so you end up finding what used to be popular before, i.e. not many new things are happening there.
