Working on it. Opencascade-ce is in the repos, and I just submitted coin3d patch for evaluation:

JoshStrobl changed the status of subtask T902: coin3d from Open to In Progress.Oct 1 2016, 3:37 PM

I was wondering if there was any progress on this?

Just in case anyone is interested Freecad now has an appimage that works on Solus

The freecad AppImage is currently down. Any update on when freecad will be available in Solus natively?

@teedeeus if you go to their GitHub page you can still download the appimage for 0.16 and the appimage for their development release 0.17. It probably won't land till 0.17 has become stable.

Thanks @BearzR

Using app image for now.

Still think a package in repo would be good

So would i, but as I said above it probably won't land until 0.17 is finished.

@simniotiqu I can share what I did already

@simniotiqu How is this coming along? If you need help packing and testing it there is a lot of people who would love to get this in the repo, so I (and possibly others) would be more than willing to help.

Not much admittedly.
Looked into making a pyside2 package with the git source so if the release happens we can hit the ground running. But it looks like they have a qt 5.9 and qt 5.11 branch that doesn't play nice with qt 5.10 in the solus repo (as far as I know might be wrong). I'm on the pyside2 mailing list so if something changes I try again.

As this task has been marked Needs Maintainer for a month with nobody having stepped up to become maintainer, in addition to providing an acceptable patch for inclusion, marking as WONTFIX. Feel free to re-open when a patch has been submitted via the proper processes.

Version 0.18 is released. Can someone try their luck with this version?

Unassigning @simniotiqu since there was no activity for months and the task is free for grab.
