I've lurked around the OCC community for a few weeks now, and I finally have a few questions.
1) Is there an active PythonOCC forum/wiki/IRC channel/mailing list/user group/blog?
The official wiki seems pretty dead (two updates in the last 30 days), and doesn't really contain anything of value. This forum has a couple of threads about it, but they're not particularly recent even though the latest version of PythonOCC was released just in August. Where do the developers hang out? Where do users go to gripe about installation issues, missing features, or other questions?
2) In fact I have just such a question, so I hope I'm in the right place. I installed the Python 2.5 version of the Win32 PythonOCC module, btw.:
I have a TopoDS_Shape, incidentally a result from BRepBuilderAPI_Transform.ModifiedShape(). I want the corresponding wire to this shape. I can't really do a type-cast because it's Python, not C++. I tried passing the shape to the TopoDS_Wire.__init__() function, with no success. I also tried passing it to BRepBuilderAPI_MakeWire(), which didn't work.
How do I get a TopoDS_Wire from a TopoDS_Shape?
3) Is there a roadmap or some other indication of the changes planned for PythonOCC, and the expected time-table? I'm super-impressed looking at the project log - from very basic release to (nearly) fully functional product in 6 months! What's next?
