Great news! Great news! openCamLib (OCL) for Python 3.6 is doable. I just finished compiling and testing in a recent FC Conda PY3-Qt5 release!
First, I would like to thank

for his provision of the Python 2.7 OCL package he has had available for a while now. It has allowed me to assist in with the development of the PathWB and enjoy the wonderful CAM features in FC.
Furthurmore, I would like to thank

for his update to the OCL source and making the Windows MSVS project files available.
I second, SGrogan's, "Thank-you very, very much peterl94!!!
Mostly, I should thank @AeWallin (don't know his FC handle) for the wonderful OCL library. It works wonders! Thanks!
I compiled from source, combining AeWallin's active GH repo, with the Windows files from PeterLama's GH fork. I used Boost 1.70. I followed the instructions in PeterLama's README file in his Windows directory. I had to learn a hard lesson with the user-config.jam file !! PLACE YOUR BOOST AND PYTHON LIBRARIES IN PATHS THAT CONTAIN NO SPACES. If someone can tell me how to use paths with spaces in the .jam file for Boost on Windows, I'd really appreciate it. Also, you do not need to compile all of the Boost libraries. You only need the python library. You can limit this at the command line and save lots, and lots, and lots, and lots of time.
My next goal is to learn to compile FreeCAD from source, using APeltauer's resources for Windows users.
Thanks and good-night,
