My random knot in the Web


From the release of version 3.2, the py-stl software has been renamed to stltools. The reason I made this change mostly has to do with how FreeBSD handles packages. Programs that require an interpreter are prefixed with its name and version. So py-stl would become py27-py-stl, which would be silly.

This release also introduces a new backend module stltools. This module uses numpy arrays to contain the 3D coordinates. This should make manipulating large STL files faster.

In 2015, the source repository has been published on github. Development is done on the develop branch, and people are encouraged to try that. Note that the development version uses Python 3.
