The original STEP file as provided by Newport works flawlessly, but the one that came with the assembly doesn't.
Can you post or provide a link to the problematic step file?

Re: Utility to inspect OpenCascade models

I'm on Mint 19.3 which is based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS... ATM I'm stacked on detecting OCCT: What version of occt? Where is it installed? What are your results of these 3 commands? cmake --find-package -DNAME=OpenCASCADE -DCOMPILER_ID=GNU -DLANGUAGE=CXX -DMODE=EXIST cmake --find-package -DNAME=OpenCAS...

Re: Utility to inspect OpenCascade models

Out of curiosity what are the issues you have with cmake and what's better with meson? This is pretty subjective, so I will list what I can come up with right now but you should just try it on something. I have used meson on linux and mac, but can't speak to the windows experience. This is my prior...

Re: Utility to inspect OpenCascade models

The meson version is important , but the others are probably not. edit the meson.build file and change to match your installed version and give it a shot. It doesn't work with Qt5.9.5 The Meson build system Version: 0.45.1 ... meson.build:11:0: ERROR: method 'cmake' is invalid I'm on Linux Mint 19....

Re: Utility to inspect OpenCascade models

Thanks, will try it out. P.S. For the very first quick attempt, meson was to old, fixed with PIP install, Qt was to old ... i guess for starters i need a newer Linux distro. ;) The meson version is important, but the others are probably not. edit the meson.build file and change to match your instal...

Re: Utility to inspect OpenCascade models

Congratulations. P.S. But now you will likely have to share build instructions. ;) debian bullseye: occt7.4 from source to default location /usr/local vtk8.2 from source to default location /usr/local all other dependencies installed with 'apt install' git clone --recursive https://gitlab.com/blobf...

Re: Utility to inspect OpenCascade models

Finally some results on debian bullseye. I compiled and installed occt and vtk. Everything else was from 'apt'. I had to swear a lot at vtk. No version seem to 'just work' with 'make & make install'. I won't tell how much time I put into this ;)

Re: Utility to inspect OpenCascade models

... As for Tcl/Tk, Tk is not required but Tcl is needed because there's an embedded Tcl console which makes much sense for rapid prototyping. My question/comment was more: "I was surprised you are manually building and installing tcl instead of just installing from the repo with 'apt', because I ha...

Re: Utility to inspect OpenCascade models

... and any criticism is very welcome, ok :D Normally on debian based distros, locally built packages get installed to '/usr/local/'. My build processes became much smoother, once I quit fighting this. Dependencies that are real specific, like ActiveData, I would make git submodules and do a recurs...
