Naming convention for software tutorials?

Post by WillAdams » Thu Apr 25, 2013 3:46 am

Was thinking about this --- seems we could have discrete tutorials for each stage of the process and then link them together arbitrarily, e.g., we have tutorials for both OpenSCAD and FreeCAD, both of which output to .stl --- we could then have multiple tutorials for CAM files which accept STL as input.

So, we'd have:

- Tutorial_CAD_3D_<projectname>_stl_OpenSCAD
- Tutorial_CAD_3D_<projectname>_stl_FreeCAD

and (say)

- Tutorial_CAM_3D_stl_pyCAM
- Tutorial_CAM_3D_stl_HeeksCNC

Then we'd just need some overview pages and a way to update links at the bottom of the pages --- seem reasonable?

And of course the first one which I write up:

Is too intricately tied together to make a nice, clean separation easy --- will have to whack at it later to separate the parts.
