  Description     : Free CAD based on Open CASCADE

HeeksCAD is a free, open source, CAD application.

Functionality: Import solid models from STEP and IGES files. Draw construction geometry and lines and arcs. Create new primitive solids, or make solids by extruding a sketch or by making a lofted solid between sketches. Modify solids using blending, or boolean operations. Save IGES, STEP and STL. Printer plot the 2D geometry or to HPGL. Import and export dxf files; lines, arcs, ellipses, splines and polylines are supported. Use the geometric constraints solver to create accurate drawings from rough sketches.

The solid modeling is provided by Open CASCADE. The graphical user interface is made using wxWidgets.

retitle 561002 "ITP: heekscnc -- CNC machining add-in for HeeksCAD"
thanks

I'm using these two now for my own purposes, and will do the extra work
to upload policy-compliant packages.  The only issue I see so far is
that add-ins like heekscnc need access to some heekscad source files
during the build, so it may make sense to create one Debian source
package that emits multiple binary packages.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of heekscad back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting heekscad, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 560766 ITP: heekscad -- Free CAD based on Open CASCADE
 owner 560766 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <560766@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>

Note that Dan Heeks now suggests on his web site that upstream development of
HeeksCAD and HeeksCAM stalled.  He suggests people focus their attention on 
FreeCAD instead, which is already packaged for Debian as 'freecad'.
