Re: Has anyone installed all of the add on features and made it available for uploading / downloading

Add-ons are developed by the community, independent of the FreeCAD base program. I think a "kitchen sink" binary with all add-ons included would be an unstable unusable hairball. Best practice is to be very selective about add-ons. The Add-on manager in 0.17_pre makes it easy.

Re: Status of pre-release binaries?

Thanks for clarifying, and I see now that the hash in the filename matches latest commit in master. I saw the 0.17_pre tag in the filename and jumped to the entirely wrong conclusion, my bad. I would like to learn more about the CI process. I searched the forum for "travis" but need some structural ...

Status of pre-release binaries?

Background: Hi, I'm a noob to FC, tried to build master@HEAD on the mac, but found the wiki CompileOnMac page was badly out of date. So NormandC granted edit privs and I gave it a serious whack. It's better now. The reason for this post is because there was existing language on the wiki CompileOnMa...

Re: CompileOnMac wiki page updated

I verified the steps for Qt5 release build on a relatively clean Sierra install on MacbookPro8,3 (early 2011 17"). I did not verify Qt4 build, but I did get a segfault from having Qt4 installed during a Qt5 build. I put the Qt4 related stuff such as that in its own section. IMO 99.9% of people will ...

CompileOnMac wiki page updated

Hey all, NormandC gave me edit privs, and I just finished a massive edit on https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/CompileOnMac. Let me know what you think, or better yet, request edit privs and do it yourself. :D

Re: Cannot compile FreeCad on MacOS X

Can someone please update the wiki to provide the right command line steps? It would be great, if you do it yourself. You have had the problems, you solved them, and now you can share your knowledge. There is probably currently nobody here having better knowledge how to do this from a newbie's poin...

Re: Cannot compile FreeCad on MacOS X

I'm a FC noob compiling on mac for the first time, minimal experience with brew, cmake, etc. I spent quite a while figuring things out, but eventually was able to build the app bundle from HEAD. Can someone please update the wiki to provide the right command line steps? First problem was that 'brew ...
