Main (#1) - FreeCAD integration on Mac OSX (#84) - Message List
as I mentioned a year ago, I was trying hard to run OpenPLM on my home iMac. Now running OpenPLM on a VM and opening OpenPLM with the shown IP-adress in my favourite browser works fine.
Currently I try to work FreeCAD together with OpenPLM. But all trials failed because I do not know how to get the according plugin work. The tutorial does not really help me.
Can anyone help? I am using Mac OSX 10.8.X and FreeCAD 0.14 stable.
Thanks in advance.
The tuto for FreeCAD plugin is here : http://www.openplm.org/docs/2.0/en/user/plugin_freecad.html
But I guess you've already read it. Anyway, this plugin was designed for FreeCAD versions 0.10 and 0.11 (and you tried for 0.14).
The plugin uses the http-api : http://www.openplm.org/docs/2.0/en/devel/http-api.html
And you get a better 3D management using the Document3D app : http://www.openplm.org/docs/2.0/en/admin/applications/document3D/index.html
I think you'll have to debug and update the plugin by yourself.
Could you tell us more about it ?
Did you succesfuly install the plugin (installing the library Poster and running the command ./install.sh) ?
Do you see the OpenPLM workbench ?
What are messages from the OpenPLM web server ?

I tried hard to success in connecting OpenPLM with FreeCAD. OpenPLM server is running, I am able to start OpenPLM in my favorite browser with the according IP-address, and I am able to login.
Starting FreeCAD now offers me the workbench OpenPLM, but when I select the workbench, the only thing that happens is the message in the python console ">>> Gui.activateWorkbench("OpenPLMWorkbench")".
Nothing else happens. There does not appear any new menu item!?
I would like to connect the 2 programs in future, but I think there is a lot of work to do for me, isn't it?
Perhaps there is a simple solution... Perhaps You know some tricks?
Thanks in advance.

I'm sorry for my late reply.
The FreeCAD plugin was based on FreeCAD versions 0.10 and 0.11. You are working with FreeCAD 0.14.
I guess the plugin should be updated due to FreeCAD API modifications.
If I were you, I'd study the FreeCAD API (starting from the "activateWorkbench" method) and try to modify the OpenPLM plugin (it is written in python).
