This file describes how to build and install HeeksCNC under Unix systems.
To build HeeksCNC, you need to install these requirements (with develoment files)
- OpenCASCADE or OCE (OpenCASCADE Community Edition)
- wxWidgets 2.8
Create a build directory (e.g. build/ in sources root directory):
mkdir build cd build
If you want a default prefix (/usr/local) and a "Release" type, simply run:
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=$PWD/install ..
Important note: HeeksCNC's prefix should be the same as HeeksCAD to work correctly
After a successful CMake configuration, you can build using:
If you want more output (ie. to debug):
Using default or system-wide prefix:
sudo make install
Please note that if you installed it in /usr/local, you may need to run:
If you choose a user-writable prefix, superuser privileges are not needed:
HeeksCNC is used through HeeksCAD interface. HeeksCNC requires additional python modules at runtime:
- python module built by libarea
- python module built by opencamlib
mkdir build && cd build && cmake .. && make
mkdir debug && cd debug && cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=$PWD/install .. && make && make install LD_LIBRARY_PATH=install/lib install/bin/heekscad
