Note the comment that says KICAD_USE_OCC will override KICAD_USE_OCE.
Thus, one would think that just setting KICAD_USE_OCC=ON would be
sufficient to automatically set KICAD_USE_OCE=OFF
Also, the code at line 472 makes it look like setting
would set KICAD_USE_OCE=OFF. However, in my build, that didn't work,
and I had to explicitly set KICAD_USE_OCE=OFF.
Thanks Steve! I'm very happy to hear that Fedora is switching.
I pushed a fix for the issue you've identified.
Thanks Seth - that was fast! I confirm that the fix is good. I can
now build with just setting KICAD_USE_OCC=ON.
I tried opening a 3-d view of a board, and it loaded correctly. Is
that a sufficient test for OCC or is there more that I should try?
3d view will check that we import models correctly. I would suggest the
- Exporting the demo boards to STEP files.
- Importing a mix of STEP and IGES models into a board
- Be sure to check exports of boards with cut out holes in the middle
- Check boards with arcs on the edge.cuts
- Check boards with circles on the edge.cuts
