Updated (public) todo list (as of Jan. 21, 2020):
1.) Making the Window, Door and Garage Door modules work with generic walls, not just Medeek walls.
2.) Shear Wall module which will ultimately integrate with the engineering plugin.
3.) Presets for Garage Doors
4.) Move the Estimating module to the new Medeek Project extension, and further develop this module as it relates to the wall plugin.
5.) Start work on the integrated Medeek Engineering extension, start with window and door headers for vertical loads. (in progress)
6.) Additional door and window types as requested (eg. bi-fold closet doors, sliding glass doors, pocket doors, double and triple single hung windows).
7.) Spend some time on the new tabs in the global settings, currently showing an Under Construction sign.
8.) Stair module permutations: U, L, T etc…
9.) Further “idiot” proofing of the plugins: (zero value, nil values, checking for impossible geometry, etc…)
10.) Wall Justification
11.) Interior trim added to Medeek Interior extension.
12.) Resume development of the Medeek Floor extension. (in progress)
13.) Complex Roof rafter algorithm (in progress)
The items marked in italics have been completed.
More door and window types still need to be added, this one seems never ending.
I did begin work on item #1, however there are some difficulties that I ran into which have placed this item on hold for now.
There are a number of other small issues or features that are not included in this list that need further attention, most of which I would call mid-hanging fruit.
The initial Medeek Engineering extension is functional as far as applying, modifying and deleting loads and supports, however the most important part (matrix analysis) is still in development.
The complex roof rafter algorithm is mostly there but there are still enough special cases that quite a bit of logic is still needed to make it reliable and stable.
P.S. Since the last todo list was posted I’ve made approximately 30 major updates to the Wall plugin and 11 major updates to the Electrical plugin (since July 2020 until now). The biggest update of course was in the month of July when the gable walls were added. I am hoping this new year brings better fortunes for our nation and the world and somehow we are able to beat back this virus. Hopefully by the time the next Basecamp rolls around I will have the engineering up and running and the complex roofs, I would also like to get the first BETA release of the floor plugin out by March if possible.
My roadmap is pretty aggressive and due to the pandemic I am still the only one actually coding these plugins, my plans to bring on additional help were scrapped about 10 months ago. That being the case, the development will probably not proceed as quickly as I would like but at the same time I am still working at these plugins full time so my intent is to push ahead with all of the energy that I can muster.
