I'm adding the Extra Nodes in Sverchok, but can't get FreeCAD connected.

It seems to want to connect to a FreeCAD library in a folder, but the only option I could find on the FreeCAD site was to download a compiled app.

I tried setting the path to the bin folder inside the app – /Applications/FreeCAD.app/Contents/Resources/bin/ – but it still reports "FreeCAD package is not available".

Do I need to connect to a specific file in the bin? Here's a screenshot of the contents:

I've gone through the Dependencies documentation on the Sverchok Github pages, but they don't offer a Mac-specific solution, and the Linux solution errors out because it can't find and run "apt".

Any suggestions or solutions would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you using MACOS, than you don't have apt. Use your mac installer to install libfreecad-python3-0.18 somehow. or try files from linux: https://yadi.sk/d/qG5-IPfmqleeYw?w=1 if it will work, please, reply here.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the tips, but no luck with either. I also pulled the files and stored them locally, but the addon wouldn't make the connection. $\endgroup$
