GitHub - Am I being stupid?

Recommended Posts

I'm no github expert but what I do is usually to just go to the main page for the project and then click on the "Download zip" button on the right side about half way down the page. Then you'll get a zip file of all the files and you can pick and choose whatever you want from that.

Otherwise I guess clicking "View raw" and then saving the resulting page as a .step file could work?

Nope. It's a classic case of programmers creating a tool for programmers. "Regular people usability" is very low on the priority list. I'm sure all the command line tools and such when properly integrated into your tool chain makes it work very well, but for someone who's just passing by it's a bit of a pain.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
