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
