HeeksCNC

This file describes how to build and install HeeksCNC under Unix systems.

Requirements

To build HeeksCNC, you need to install these requirements (with develoment files)

  • HeeksCAD
  • OpenCASCADE or OCE (OpenCASCADE Community Edition)
  • wxWidgets 2.8

Preparation

Create a build directory (e.g. build/ in sources root directory):

mkdir build
cd build

Configure build

If you want a default prefix (/usr/local) and a "Release" type, simply run:

cmake ..

If you want to change install prefix (e.g. /usr):

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..

If you want to debug HeeksCNC and its install:

cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$PWD/install ..

Important note: HeeksCNC's prefix should be the same as HeeksCAD to work correctly

Build

After a successful CMake configuration, you can build using:

make

If you want more output (ie. to debug):

make VERBOSE=1

Install

Using default or system-wide prefix:

sudo make install

Please note that if you installed it in /usr/local, you may need to run:

sudo ldconfig

If you choose a user-writable prefix, superuser privileges are not needed:

make install

Run

HeeksCNC is used through HeeksCAD interface. HeeksCNC requires additional python modules at runtime:

  • python module built by libarea
  • python module built by opencamlib

One-liner snippets

Default:

mkdir build && cd build && cmake .. && make

Debug:

mkdir debug && cd debug && cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$PWD/install .. && make && make install
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=install/lib install/bin/heekscad
You can’t perform that action at this time.
