Hi @ILF. Originally I'd been using the 'opencascade7' AUR package and then replaced it with the 'oce' AUR package because it seemed to be better maintained then. At that time there was no 'opencascade' package in the standard repositories. It was added in September and I haven't noticed it till your post now.

I'll make a transition to it sometime next week. If you know how to build in clean chroot and do basic check for unnecessary dependencies I can add you as a maintainer and you can make the change sooner if you have time.

@p90 "pyside2-tools" is in the 'Extra' standard arch repo for a long time. Just click the link in the dependency listing on this page.

I think the dependency "pyside2-tools" went the way of the Dodos or at least cannot be found in the aur anymore.

@Grawp: quick question, why not use opencascade instead of oce. I suppose there's a significant amount of people who use both kicad and freecad, and kicad-git package moved to opencascade, because freecad used it, but your package (which is probable the best freecad package in aur) still uses OCE. Can you switch it to opencascade?

@drhooves would you be interested in helping kickstart a FreeCAD-Assembly3-git port? Further discussion:

Python 3.7 fix is now committed in upstream FreeCAD so I have deleted the repo.

Be0rn commented on 2018-08-28 11:00

For python3.7 y have change the source in PKGBUILD by: /// source=("${_appname}::git+" ///

thx Grawp !

@jorges I don't use FEM but you certainly need to add -DBUILD_FEM_NETGEN=1 to cmake arguments.

Is anyone using the FEM workbench? I installed netgen-git, a requirement for creating meshes, and rebuilt freecad-python3-git but it seems as it wasn't picked up. There's still the possibility to use an external tool for this, gmsh, which I am using at the moment, but I was curious about netgen

@drhooves Hi, do you plan updating this package? I've created and am maintaining a fairly well working freecad-python3-git. In case you don't wish to continue maintaining this packge maybe we could merge it with mine?
