This is a short presentation of softwares (PC, Android) and pdf-documents made by Jan Lindström.
The PC-apps exists in Linux (both 32- and 64-bits)- and Windows (32-bits)- versions. 32-bits will normaly work on 64-systems. The opposite will never. Distribution exists as compressed zip- or tar.gz archives. The softwares need no installation, and have small demands on the systems. The Windows-versions can be run on other platforms (Linux, Mac OS X, BSD and Solaris), with the help of Wine. The programs are free to use, if you follow the simple license (se included Info-files).
Excluding Pdf-files, are now the files to be downloaded from here, hosted at Koofr.net or TinyUpload.com (see links below). Downloads are free and fast, and you need no accounts.
HULTABY and 3DSVARV exists also as Android-apps. For now are they not published (uploaded to a market). So to install them, you have to change your settings to "unknown sources". And of course trust the apps. The apps have no possession to the rest of your system. They will not connect to the internet. Should work with Android >=4.1.
afTRYCK version 2
Metal spinning can be seen as an spectacular, hard-learned, and quite old technique, this to form a round sheet of metal. afTRYCK is a software that describes it. This version has been rewritten in a new language, and style. For those who prefer PDF-documents, exists afTRYCK also as such. One English-, and one Swedish- version. They lack though the softwares animation and flexibility.
Image-based application that takes a turn around a metal spinning lathe, this in a 3d enviroment. Can be seen as a complement to afTRYCK. Text included, are in both English, and Swedish.
Hultaby gives you in 3D, Hultaby castle (or maybe more accurate, residence), in my view of its 14th century apperance. Today it´s a ruin, just outside the city Vetlanda, Sweden. Read more HERE. The software exists as an Android app.

Describes the history behind the Swedish system with pewtermarks. Also included are a list of yesterdays masters, from the authors province (Småland). Exist also in a version with Swedish text.
