PROBLEMS WITHIN THE ROCO WEB INTERFACE
The web interface of ROCO needs an update and I wanted to list some of the urgent fixes that need to be implemented. Firstly, the thumbnails that are presented within the roco website are not visually appealing. They are models directly pulled from the 3D view from the rocolibrary fixed as a png file. Possible fix may be that when these designs get more complex and more parts get added, the 3D view itself would be more complex which would in turn fix the design itself.
The second visual flaw is the next and the previous buttons: Now, these serve their purposes, but there is an odd vertical box that does not need to be there. This is most likely decided from the html template files. I’m going to try and remove that by next week.
Third and final flaw is the zoom in/out functions:
I will also write more blog posts as soon as I fix these problems and when I find more flaws I can improve.
