Just wondering if anyone in the community uses FreeCAD and in some way integrates it with OpenStudio?

It seems to me that the development is focusing on floorspace.js.

It sounds like it would be a great project, all open source. I'm not sure how much FreeCAD is used.

OpenStudio (branch develop3) with python3 bindings working in FreeCAD (python3 and pyside2) I really think that this is a nice option

Wow that would be really cool. I haven't even built python bindings on develop3 yet so you are ahead of us on that too! Feel free to drop me a line by email if you ever want to talk.

Thank you very much for your interest, Mr. Macumber. It's a pleasure to study with OpenStudio.

Hello guys!! @Damian and @macumber Is this really working now with the changes in OpenStudio platform. To have OpenStudio as an AddOn in FreeCad would be amazing! Imagine: BIM, BEM and CFD together in the same opensource platform!
