Il semble que certaines personnes se sentent un peu perdues (pour ne pas avoir
lu le manuel !) pour demander l'activation complète de leur version d'essai,
voici quelques mots de Claude ( mes propres mots : lisez le foutu manuel ! )

[open quote]    
Bonjour

Ce n’est pas compliqué, le logiciel est en téléchargement ici .
Après téléchargement et installation l'on dispose d’une version d’évaluation mais avec
l’ensemble des documents explicatifs au format Pdf.
Pour obtenir une licence il suffit de me faire une demande de code après un paiement Paypal
de 40€.
Dès réception du paiement et des informations personnelles via « Aide/Demande Code »,
je transmets un code de débridage personalisé qu'il n'y a plus qu’à saisir via « Aide/Saisie Code ».
Ariane est  immédiatement opérationnelle.
Le fait d’acheter la licence te donne droit aux évolutions futures gratuitement.
Actuellement je suis à la version V2.2.0.2 et je travaille sur une version V3 que je
transmettrai dès qu’elle sera disponible à tous les titulaires d’une licence.
Cette nouvelle version amène de nouvelles fonctionnalités dans la pose des croisements et dans
la création d’irréguliers offrant ainsi la panoplie complète.

Je suis très intéressé par les travaux réalisés graceà Ariane (photos) pour en intégrer
quelques unes en démo dans Ariane.
De plus les remarques, bugs éventuels, suggestions d’évolution, remarques, questions sont
toujours les bienvenues afin d’améliorer le logiciel

Cordialement

Claude

It seems that some persons feel a bit lost ( they did not read the manual !) when asking for the activation of their trial version, here are some words from Claude (my own words : RTFM ! at least to know how to set the language )


[open quote] Good day to you,
It is not complicated, the software can be downloaded here
Afterdownloading and installing you are with atrial version but with a full set of informations
in .pdf
To get your licence you simply ask for it afetr making a 40 euros PAYPAL payment.
As soon as I get your payment and personal info using "Help/Request Code   I will sent to
you your personal activation code that you will simply enter in "Help/Code Entry"
Ariane is immediately fully licensed and with no limitation.
Buying a licence give you the right  to get for free all the future versions.
A present  I am at V2.2.0.2 and I am working on the V3 that I will send , as soon as it
is ready, to all the persons with a licence.
This new version will bring several new functions such as free or manual crossings placing
and the possibility to crete "irregular" nested-bight cylindrical knots so giving the full range
of possibilities.
I am deeply interested in all the work done with Ariane ( photos) to put some
of that in demo in Ariane.
Remarks, eventual bugs detected, sugestions for evolution, questions are always
welcome se as to go on making the software go on its evolution.
Cordialement
Claude

RKnot BUILDER
NEW VERSION V3.0.1.21



http://charles.hamel.free.fr/knots-and-cordages/RKBUILDER_HOCHET/


_______________



Added 2011 July 13th          ARIANE

ARIANE would make a bad politician, you know those opportunists who are always
promising something will come soon but never keeping their words.

Ariane is not an always promised software never coming in the hands of users but is
a
really powerful and user friendly software for Nested-Bights Cylindrical Knots but
its power is still growing.

The latest version I am priovoiledged to be the only one to have for thorough testing can
REALLY do ANY cordage route (The IRREGULAR type) but alse ANY coding that you
may care to invent and is compatible with the cordage route.

Just see a small sample here




_______________


Added 2011 July 13th          ARIANE

Many persons have expressed an interest in ARIANE (can do REGULAR NESTED-BIGHT
cylindrical knots whether SYMMETRIC or ASYMMETRIC.
The version that can do "IRREGULAR" is for the moment restricted to an "inner circle'" to
make sure of its stability and usability by ANYone and not just rather specialized persons
having extensively studied such knots.

ARIANE EVALUATION VERSION can be downloaded from

of this page

Claude HOCHET fantastic, very user friendly,  program :
RKnot Builder is now in VERSION 3
http://charles.hamel.free.fr/knots-and-cordages/RKBUILDER_HOCHET/

With it you gets for each Half-Period the crossings in it.
It tackles REGULAR KNOTS (SCHAAKE's nomenclature - single strand knots made
on  a Turk's Head cordage route or  shadow whatever its coding type.

Not sadly limited to COLumn-coded knots but goes well beyond :
to ROW-coded and the NEITHER row coded NOR column coded ones.

Even have a library of already-entered knots.

DOWNLOAD THE TRIAL VERSION (read User's manual in pdf format  first) :
fully functional

BUT you need to enter a knot with
MORE THAN 26 BIGHTs AND MORE THAN 19 LEADs

Remember :
praise without a prior deep study of something is just stupidity and dishonesty
but criticism without having deeply studied that same something is in the same way  just
stupidity and dishonesty.

It has been extensively tested on XP / VISTA / WIN-7
and is working in the hand of a capable user of those OS.


To  set it to English go OUTILS   CONFIGURATION  chose your language.
Close the application and start it again : setting is done for language

you have a .zip file,

Hello,
         My name is John Richings and I live in Wales and am a wrinkly 73 year old.
         Just a note to say I succeeded tieing the 360 facet  (with the help of Jan Vos' diagram)
         Tied on a 40mm polystyrene ball in 1.5mm 8plait so called "chalk line"

I had to rework the picture with Photoshop and 'resharpen' its focus.

DOWNLOAD THE TRIAL VERSION (read User's manual in pdf format  first) :
fully functional

OBSOLETE LINK
( despite what some one  unable to read the user's manual chose to post, or despite the fact
that another guy suggested to stay put and keep a much less powerful program under the
pretext that it is "free" and that you don' t have to go to school to use it  - By the way it is
a none too bright way to say "stay with the one for the dumbs" ! which is a big injustice
toward the program  that he is trying to defend.- a good program mind you in its limits -

A bicycle may be as useful or even more useful to you than a racing car but intellectual logic
forbid comparison when comparability is not maintained.

Would you compare a 50kg boxer with a 110kg one : of course not ! that is why there exist
weight categories to "maintain comparability".

Mind you that free program that guy favored I have nothing against it , I just object to the
thoughtless destructive words - without even having tried the program what an intellectual
feat of honesty !!! Those words are leaving no chance to a reader to keep an honestly open
mind after reading such an onslaught of negativism-  
This free program that was so dumbly defended is quite useful in its own circumscribed way 
but is not in the same league as  RKBuilder  by a long chalk.( too many coding type cannot
be treated  with the freebie)

I owe it to fairness to say that there are some open and honest mind(s) there too, I know
one or two at least and I have always seen them be that.
Just regretting that there are not a lot more.

Remember :
praise without a prior deep study of something is just stupidity and dishonesty
but criticism without having deeply studied that same something is in the same way  just
stupidity and dishonesty.

V1  FULLY FUNCTIONAL but it works only for knots with more than 50  L    50  B .

Added 2010 Sept 27th : IMPORTANT
Now for V2 it is MORE THAN 20 and not any more  the 50 limit


This work (for the V1 alone) represents over 800 hours of theoretical studies with
Schaake's books, code writing, testing.

30 euros == 30 euros  are 41.17 us$   4117 cents / 800 = 5.15 CENTS AS HOUR
RATE !
You have to be indeed a very poor soul to be greatly pitied  to be able to consider that
someone is trying to make his fortune stealing you ! Laughable, derisive laugh that is.

Typical of thissad frame of mind  :  " not made by one of us so it is junk, we are SOOO
gooooood that had it been worth something we would have done it first. "
