Web-based Solvespace (by Rune)
Hi, back in 2016 I branched and used Solvespace for starting with 3D printing. Tried Sketchup, Freecad, Autocad and friends. In 2020 I think 'installing programs' are stoneage technology and was surprised to see this forum still alive.
What about porting solvespace to PHP - Javascript ?
Something like Onshape (design whatever wherever there is internet and a browser)?
Maybe it could marry jsketcher which seems dead:

Who would be interested in development?
Jonathan Westhues?

Why go for software that is totally dependent om corporate servers, because when those servers go away so does your software?

You can run SolveSpace in a browser and host it yourself, though nothing like onshape's vault:;parent=2369&tt=1537436387

To be clear, the browser port is all whitequark's work--he just copied over the about dialog unchanged. The port runs quite well, a much smaller speed penalty than I would have imagined.
