----------- December 2022 --------------
I started working on this project again. I made a promising (but ugly) prototype and I think this could be made into a commercially successful app.
My biggest fear is that my geometry code is not up for complicated elements with openings or weird cuts in them. Luckily the vast majority of building elements I know of are just boxes.
Anyway, I love working on this and I am excited to see were it goes.

A simple CAD tool for generating reinforcement plans for concrete building parts from 3d models.
- Load a 3d model
- Pick reference planes by clicking model faces
- Define: type, direction, diameter and amount of reinforcement for each plane
- Generate 2d views from the planes and export a PDF with all the views
This will probably not be an useful or finished app in the end. It is more of learning project for me. I want to create a simple CAD app framework that I can re-use for later projects, figure out how to create 2d views from a 3d model and how to create PDFs (see what libraries are available for that).
I also want to facilitate meta programming as much as possible and figure out what is possible and makes sense in that regard.
