I would like to know if someone around here would be interested in the development of the GDML module for FreeCAD, and if so, is willing to support this endeavor some way. I have been working on the geometry for the LS2 ALICE upgrade and realized that this feature would be beneficial not only to this project, but other users of ROOT.
There is this initial work by Emmanuel Delage who ported basic GDML import and export on FreeCAD followed by a recent port of his work on the latest version of FreeCAD by Keith Sloan. There is some refinement to do, such as increasing the supported primitives and implementing boolean operations.
I wonder if those interested in getting GDML input and output on FreeCAD would join an organized effort to put the module on a working condition. I would like to hear some thoughts.
