Description

Algernon is an associatively parametric 2D geometry calculator and design tool.

Points, lines, and circles can be constructed with relationships between them and in terms of variables and mathematical formulae. If any one element or variable changes, the geometry is automatically recalculated.

The geometry can be interrogated, dimensioned, inked, annotated with text, and printed (via AirPrint or e-mail export of PDF).

Aimed primarily at engineers and mathematicians (both practising and studying) it is ideally suited for computing geometrical constructions, designing or checking mechanical details, architectural layouts, etc.

Algernon does not need lots of drawing tools; it just needs one for each kind of element. It can automatically determine what kind of construction to create based upon where the user taps. This keeps the user interface clean, simple, and consistent, without restricting its sophistication. It may seem strange at first to those used to conventional CAD, but we believe it will be found natural after a short time.

The app incorporates help and reference documentation, sample model files, and introductory video demonstration.


The app contains in-built help and reference documentation, sample files, and an explanatory video tour.
