About This Topic
Construct3D has been developed from 1999 - 2008. It was a very successful MR application for fully dynamic/parametric geometry education. Details are given on https://www.ims.tuwien.ac.at/projects/construct3d
It was developed in C++ based on the Studierstube framework. Nowadays it does not run on modern hardware.
The task is to develop a new version of Construct3D based on new software and hardware platforms
* Using the Entity-Component-System (in Unity.2019 or Unreal) for easier/efficient programming of Components - dynamic geometric objects and
* Using OpenCascade for 3D modeling operations (Boolean Operations)
With this approach Construct3D could be made available for free for educational purposes without any need for licenses.

This praktikum/thesis will start with the development and it is not expected that all features are implemented - this will be a longer term process.
