If FC going to use pyocct?

I am wondering if FC is moving in the direction of using pyocct. Is this https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD_Cond ... /meta.yaml just a side branch or the "blessed direction"?

Re: Using pip to install workbenches/addons

I got the template workbench working already. I am trying to ...

Re: Use msvc2008 to compile binary release by default?

I'll see what I can do. For starters, I wish I'd found https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD_Conda much earlier.

Using pip to install workbenches/addons

Is anyone thinking about using pip and/or conda packages for freecad addons? The current solution with zip files works only for plain python addons. When binary package is needed, I guess we are out of luck. Also dependencies among addons would be handled properly as well as updates. I run into this...

Re: Use msvc2008 to compile binary release by default?

Cool. Should I go ahead and remove all the references to compiling with msvc 2008 from the wiki? In the meantime, for other poor souls with the same problem: /conda create -n freecad -c cadquery -c conda-forge freecad=0.17 python=3.6 pyparsing got me a working freecad with python3.6 where I can pip-...

Re: New libpacks for Windows with VTK and OCCT7 by sgrogan

The latest libpack for msvc2008 is missing VTK (cmake fails to configure). I am searching at https://sourceforge.net/projects/free-cad/files/FreeCAD%20LibPack/ and I have https://sourceforge.net/projects/free-cad/files/FreeCAD%20LibPack/FreeCADLibs_11.1_x86_VC9.7z/download Is that the correct locati...

Use msvc2008 to compile binary release by default?

Can the compiler for binary release be switched from msvc2013 to msvc2008? That would make it compatible with stock python 2.7 which would allow installing from pypi using pip. I have only found now while trying to get numpy working, please see https://github.com/jmwright/cadquery-freecad-module/iss...

Re: Navigation, how to rotate view not around origin - bug in 0.17?

Where should I look if I wanted to try to fix this? https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Mouse_Model I know that page. I linked to it in my first post. I am trying to say it does not behave as is described on that page. My question was meant as where in the code should I look if I want to debug this bet...

Re: Navigation, how to rotate view not around origin - bug in 0.17?

The actual behavior is more complicated. To test please see the attached file. It contains cubes in different positions. First switch navigation mode to Gesture. Then select a cube and press V,S (view -> fit selection). Now try to rotate the view. I find this always works ok - the rotation center is...

Navigation, how to rotate view not around origin - bug in 0.17?

While searching how to rotate view I found https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Mouse_Model. That page suggests it should be possible to rotate either around a selected point (CAD) or around camera focus point (gesture navigation). It does but only in 0.16. In 0.17 the rotation is always around origin. Z...
