freecad: runtime import exceptions, no module named pivy

Reported by: dbevans (David B. Evans) Owned by: Schamschula (Marius Schamschula)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version:
Keywords: Cc:
Port: freecad


While not fatal, upon starting freecad and opening one of the packaged examples, the program throws multiple import exceptions similar to the following

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/opt/local/libexec/freecad/Mod/Draft/", line 4271, in onChanged
  File "/opt/local/libexec/freecad/Mod/Draft/", line 4045, in updateData
    import DraftGui
  File "/opt/local/libexec/freecad/Mod/Draft/", line 2276, in <module>
    import DraftSnap
  File "/opt/local/libexec/freecad/Mod/Draft/", line 36, in <module>
    import FreeCAD, FreeCADGui, math, Draft, DraftGui, DraftTrackers, DraftVecUtils, itertools
  File "/opt/local/libexec/freecad/Mod/Draft/", line 38, in <module>
    from pivy import coin
<type 'exceptions.ImportError'>: No module named pivy

Apparently a missing runtime dependency on module pivy which provides python bindings for Coin3D.

Pivy is apparently not yet ported to MacPorts but a fork is available (with python3 compatibility fixes) on FreeCAD's github repository FreeCAD/pivy.

Thanks for letting me know about this. In my quick testing I did not run into this.
