ply is already used by OpenSCAD and is going to be used by FEM, too.
Just to clarify this point for everybody reading. Ply was already used as a dependency in OpenSCAD Workbench
. However, in the past Ply was directly included in FreeCAD's source code, inside the Mod/OpenSCAD/ply directory. Now, this directory is removed (#2904
), therefore, the user must install Ply before using OpenSCAD (or FEM now).
This shouldn't be a problem though because the packagers can include Ply in the AppImage and Conda builds, and in Debian it can be listed as a dependency of FreeCAD. So in general, it should work the same. See Discussion: removing Ply from FreeCAD's source code
