conda create --name CloudComPy310 python=3.10
   # --- erase previous env if existing

conda config --add channels conda-forge
conda config --set channel_priority strict
conda install "boost=1.74" "cgal=5.4" cmake ffmpeg "gdal=3.5" jupyterlab "matplotlib=3.5" "mysql=8.0" "numpy=1.22" "opencv=4.5" "openmp=8.0" "pcl=1.12" "pdal=2.4" "psutil=5.9" pybind11 "qhull=2020.2" "qt=5.15" "scipy=1.8" sphinx_rtd_theme spyder tbb tbb-devel "xerces-c=3.2"

WARNING CloudComPy is now built with pybind11 instead of Boost.Python. For the CloudComPy user, the Python scripts are unchanged, but there is always the possibility of small changes in the behaviour of the code or bugs not covered by the tests. (if so, please post issues).

This version brings the following features:

  • CloudComPy is built with Python 3.10 instead of Python 3.9
  • update to CloudCompare master > 2.12.4 (september 15, 2022)
  • (issue #53) update pdal version to 2.4.2: needs conda Python 3.10. Works on Linux and Windows
  • (issue #54) fix the bug on save scalar fields with laz 1.4 -test added on extra scalar field saved an correctly loaded, see test020.py
  • (issue #64) a use case with invalid points (E57 file) and scalar fields to resize, see test041.py
  • (issue #65) add possibility of automatic downloading of sample files for ctest, update README for ctest, see test041.py
  • (issue #66) get access to global shift: see ccShiftedObject::getGlobalShift, see test006.py
  • Various small fixes.

NOTE: issues #49 and #50 are still under analysis, they will require further development. The changes done in the conda packaging and the use of pybind11 are a necessary step towards solving these issues.

This binary requires also libomp.so.5 installed on the system: for ubuntu 

sudo apt-get install libomp5

Only tested un Ubuntu 20.04 (focal), please report any problems on other distributions.
