Re: Pi3D

Sorted something out at last. Here's what seems to be a functioning version of loadModel(). http://www.eldwick.org.uk/files/loadmodel.zip It's a zip file including the modified pi3d, a test .py and a couple of egg files one with a jpeg UV and one with png. You can probably find other egg files or pr...

Re: Pi3D

Following Tim's encouragement I have started the process of making an equivalent of the loadModule() At the moment I'm working on the basis of just one material and texture per object with fairly minimal functionality. Seems to parse the egg data ok, I will put full code up once I have joined it in ...

Re: Pi3D

couldn't post this in a comment on Tim's 'news' post so I will put it here. It's some tidying up of the cloud demonstration (still see-through background but nicer clouds) # Clouds 3D example using pi3d module # =================================== # Copyright (c) 2012 - Tim Skillman # # This example...

sailing simulator

Here's the start of my sailing simulator project. NB NOT running on RPi, on laptop at the moment http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAMCS8EzOmI http://www.eldwick.org.uk/node/87 It still needs the panda3d libraries converting to RPi and the hardware. I'm thinking at the moment of something like the foll...

Re: 3D

More than 'alive and kickin'; you sound like a RPi evangelist, going round to events with your hardware in tow. I feel a bit lame just doing the odd potter now and again. If there is any teasing out dependencies and so on that you can subcontract I'm happy to help. Though I understand if the work of...

Re: 3D

Stormdrain I'm waiting for Jim's script and concentrating on getting the python/panda code working on a standard linux machine; not sure whether Jim's silence is a good or bad sign. There's a lot of stuff in panda that I, for one, could manage without but as I say, the little pi did manage to compil...

Re: 3D

Jim, you are right. I did manage to get "--nothing" to compile, after 4 and a half hours! Seemed to install ok as per the instructions and I eventually managed to successfully compile the first of the introduction c++ programs (as no python support in --nothing) which should just bring up a grey win...

Re: 3D

You could try putting swap on a USB disk instead of getting a larger SD card? USB-access might be faster than SD-access too? Well the little pi has got past its previous bottleneck at 39% so putting the swap on a USB disk seems to have done something. However the process wasn't completely obvious (...

Re: 3D

python makepanda/installpanda.py --nothing --use-jpeg --use-png --use-python ... 4. something else not there so installed it (can't remember what it was but just did the same as for bison!) That should have been "python makepanda/makepanda.py --nothing.." of course. (I checked the instruction to ma...

Re: 3D

Hi Any breakthroughs or advice on the Panda3d engine? I now have my pi and I have started to try and compile the panda3d stuff. Here's a brief history so far: 1. tried the apt-get route suggested on panda3d site for debian squeeze but there were a couple of errors involving missing .../armel ... so ...

Re: 3D

Any progress or pointers to more information on Panda3D for raspberryPi? I am blithely coding away a sailing simulator for the raspberryPi (+ArduinoNano+3potentiometers+bits of wood+glue+screws->£50diy)
raspberryPi should arrive today!

Re: Arduino-like custom breakout board

Or you could get a nano clone from ebay for $15 and use the usb. More purist to use the pins outs really.
