Points&Forces is a set of software tools for architects, engineers, and surveyors. It uses a command line interface. It features a flexible design, total station control, digital camera control, real-time control and visualization, processing of point clouds (from laser scanners or other sources), geometry manipulations, projection of photographs on meshes, photogrammetry, in-situ measurements, and format translations for points, lines, and triangle meshes to formats that include dxf, stl, wrl, and pov. The tools were mostly used for the documentation of cultural heritage sites and buildings.
The qpfcalc application is a Qt frontend for pfcalc, a CLI pipe friction calculator. It is similar to gpfcalc, the GTK+ frontend for pfcalc. There are two versions of qpfcalc, one for Windows and one for Linux. The Linux version should be easy to compile and run on any Unix-like operating system with few minor modifications. For the application to function properly the pfcalc backend must be installed. For the Windows version, this is not needed as qpfcalc is distributed along with all the files needed to run, including pfcalc and Qt libraries.
