@niqingliang2003 i am running git version g7fa5456d7 built against opencascade and wrl works OK - i even think WRL rendering don't go through oce/occ - just stp import and export

@pavels: stp ok, but can't display wrl -_-, what's the problem?

I have not made it use iopencasade by default over oce.

@pavels Great news, that would be great (at least for me)

Hi Just tried to build this using opencascade package by doing small changes to PKGBUILD (KICAD_USE_OCE to OFF, KICAD_USE_OCC to ON and change dependency from oce to opencascade) and it builds 100% OK. I am using STEP models no problem and tried STEP export of the whole board and worked 100% as well.

Maybe is is possible to switch dep from oce to opencascade so we don't need to keep both oce and opencascade when using FreeCAD as well?

@dbskcnc there is not reason to flag this package as out of date, it is a git package.

Kicad should work fine against occ

@nickoe freeimage ( is a dependency of OCE. Latest freeimage 3.17.0-3 misses some symbols so neither OCE recompiles against it, nor kicad compiles with OCE living in the system compiled against 3.17.0-2.

Kicad though compiles fine if I roll back freeimage to 3.17.0-2 from the archives.

In general OCE is becoming PITA, so we should probably try to use opencascade, I wouldn't want to speculate, but I would assume there is a big cross-section of people that use both kicad and freecad at the same time, so using different spins of opencascade is a bit redundant.

What is freeimage, and how does it relate to kicad?

ILF commented on 2018-06-13 14:22

Building kicad fails with the latest freeimage (dependency of OCE). OCE compilation also fails with latest freeimage, so it's not just re-linking issue. We should definitely try compiling against opencascade, if someone has any ideas, please share.
