Keywords: Sofa - GUI (Graphical User Interface) - Modeling - Physical simulation

Functional Description: Smooth the user experience with Sofa By integrating authoring features into runSofa so we can design simulation in an integrated environment. We should be able to model scenes, simulate & debug them.

This tool replaces the old "runSofa" interface, today deprecated but still in use by most SOFA users.

SofaQtQuick provides a fluid and dynamic user experience for SOFA, thanks to the integration of authoring tools to design complex simulations directly in the 3D environment, rather that scripting them as it is done today.


*Scene graph editing

*Interactive modeling

*Project oriented approach

*Prefab as reusable and parametric object

*2D Canvas

*Custom widgets per component

*Live coding

*Node base interface for data link debugging

*Everything with a non-linear workflow

Based on a code gift from Anatoscope, stringly inspired by Blender & Unity's workflow.

Release Functional Description: 1st Beta version, unstable, but testable.
