Re: Feature request: Bounded-volume fill

This has been added to the feature request page.
 
Great idea. Also, let's not forget to add this to the wiki feature request page:

http://www.nanoengineer-1.net/mediawiki/index.php?title=Feature_requests

I will add features to the Request Page as I see them. I think this duty and all duties should be distributed to everyone capable of doing them. By this I mean that everyone should add features to the Request Page. This would insure that even if one person was away from the computer for a long time, the work would still be done.
 
 
I vote me nominate one person as the designated Feature Request Updater and Tracker. I nominate Lee.

I'd like to suggest creating a new sprint backlog for this group
(which everyone can comment on) and not put a time limit on it. It
will take everyone a while to set up a development environment, get
oriented with the code and start productive coding work.
Here is a quick, short list of the things I believe should be
considered for the 1st sprint:
1. Wiki pages for setting up a NE1 developer's environment for
Windows, MacOSX and Linux. Currently we have these wiki page, but they
need to be updated:
http://nanoengineer-1.net/mediawiki/index.php?title=NE1_Build_and_Release_System_Overview
2. Epydoc install/config on the server to (re)generate NE1 API docs like these:
http://www.nanoengineer-1.com/snapshots/NE1_Documentation/
3. Updated wiki pages for creating NE1 install packages for Windows,
MacOSX and Linux.
4. Set up Bugzilla for NE1 on server (I'm working on this with Bryan
-- stay tuned).
5. Update (and clean up) the NE1 Wiki with new info (i.e. where to get
the code, setting up a NE1 dev environment, etc.) . I've started this,
but more to be done.
These 5 projects would be a good start for the first sprint.

The DNA Origami feature was superseded by "Build DNA" and all
sub-commands. Tom Moore actually designed a new origami structure
using NE1 that was eventually synthesized by Paul Rothemund. It was
painful for Tom since NE1 is so slow with large models. It is
imperative to get the graphics optimization in NE1 working (more on
that later).

I sent several requests to the authors of that paper to allow me to
include this on Thingiverse. For one, to attract attention to the fact
that we can push the envelope towards a smaller scale (Plenty of room
there... someone once said!), the second reason is to help further
democratize the toolchain for nano-scale manipulation. Many of these
things can be done with piezzo buzzers and some effort, best practices
should be shared to be able to do this with simple means.

The e-mail I got back from prof. Gaub's colleague:
========
Nice to know that you are interested in our Plastic-AFM design. You
are welcome to include it in your database if you think that it might
be useful for your needs but before some information/premonition.  I
assume that you are aware that the instruction is meant for people
that already have some background in the field of scanning probe
microscopy. Due to limited manpower we cannot give you support on
general AFM issues like handling, calibrating routines, etc. and
furthermore we will not be able to answer specific questions to  your
community members and ask you not to use the gaub@... email address as
reference.

The listed components are only for a lateral movable AFM-head meant
for single-molecule force spectroscopy and no controller-electronics
and software comes along since we use modified commercial products
from the high-end sector for this purpose and assume that users know
how to implement a low-cost alternative (e.g. based on I/O cards and
Labview) that suits their needs. To do AFM imaging one has to combine
it with a x-y-Piezo scanner and the cost per AFM head stays still in
the regime of some thousand Euros.

So if you are still interested feel free to use the design, print/
order the parts and have fun getting a start in the Nano-World.


Regards,
Stefan Stahl
======

I haven't taken the time do put the data on Thingiverse yet, so anyone
feel free to do it.

Re: Fwd: [Open Manufacturing] Re: Nanoengineer-1 Software

Thank you for your reply. You are one of the few people I have found in the world with an interest in Nanoengineer-1.

I am an engineer. My initial exposure was Tom Moore's blog http://machine-phase.blogspot.com/ This is the logical conclusion of our present technology. First I want to verify that NE1 reflects accurate results. Which I will be posting here. http://leenelsonengineer.blogspot.com/  While i continue to learn about packaging and programming I will use Windows to make some basic tests and have something to show for my efforts other than error codes. I want to see this software or something like it become part of a standard CAD package. The project has been idle for too long. It needs to be forked and continued, or rewritten.

I am also sending this to my blog - as it is engineering related. (opt out available -address not posted) Perhaps someone will see it and heed the call. http://technologiclee.blogspot.com/

Please keep me posted about any nanoengineering software.

Thanks,
lee nelson

Hi Lee,

Sorry it took so long to respond, I've been busy with other things.

There are several backend simulators that NE-1 supports.  My NE-1
package has a requirement on the Free Software simulator package that's
available in Fedora, gromacs.  During my package testing I confirmed
that performing energy minimization on a simple molecule worked.

As for NE-1 itself, I tried it again on F-13 recently and the GUI hangs
on startup.  For now I'm going to withdraw the Fedora review request for
my NE-1 package since it's clear that upstream needs to stabilize before
the software is ready for wider distribution.  Unfortunately upstream is
currently dormant.

I'll leave my packages accessible on my website so that if upstream is
revived and stabilizes we'll have a good starting point for Fedora
integration.

BTW, I'm curious: what's your background?  What got you interested in
NanoEngineer-1?

Thomas
