Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade freecad.portable -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade freecad.portable -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install freecad.portable
  win_chocolatey:
    name: freecad.portable
    version: '0.20.2.1'
    source: INTERNAL REPO URL
    state: present

See docs at https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/modules/win_chocolatey_module.html.


chocolatey_package 'freecad.portable' do
  action    :install
  source   'INTERNAL REPO URL'
  version  '0.20.2.1'
end

See docs at https://docs.chef.io/resource_chocolatey_package.html.


cChocoPackageInstaller freecad.portable
{
    Name     = "freecad.portable"
    Version  = "0.20.2.1"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"
}

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at https://github.com/chocolatey/cChoco.


package { 'freecad.portable':
  ensure   => '0.20.2.1',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',
}

Requires Puppet Chocolatey Provider module. See docs at https://forge.puppet.com/puppetlabs/chocolatey.


4. If applicable - Chocolatey configuration/installation

See infrastructure management matrix for Chocolatey configuration elements and examples.

NOTE

This package is likely a meta/virtual (*) or an installer (*.install) or portable (*.portable) application package.

  • Meta/virtual (*) - has a dependency on the *.install or the *.portable package - it is provided for discoverability and for other packages to take a dependency on.
  • Portable (*.portable/*.commandline (deprecated naming convention)/*.tool (deprecated naming convention)) - usually zips or archives that require no administrative access to install.
  • Install (*.install/*.app (deprecated naming convention)) - uses native installers, usually requires administrative access to install.

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 08 Jan 2023.

Description

This package installs the Latest Version of FreeCAD and may list a subversion determined by the version of the installer provided by FreeCAD. (Example: package version 0.19.4.2 uses installer number 2 for FreeCAD 0.19.4)

FreeCAD is a general purpose feature-based, parametric 3D modeler for CAD, MCAD, CAx, CAE and PLM, aimed directly at mechanical engineering and product design but also fits a wider range of uses in engineering, such as architecture or other engineering specialties. It is 100 % Open Source and extremely modular, allowing for very advanced extension and customization.

FreeCAD is based on OpenCasCade, a powerful geometry kernel, features an Open Inventor-compliant 3D scene representation model provided by the Coin 3D library, and a broad Python API. The interface is built with Qt. FreeCAD runs exactly the same way on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux platforms.

Features

  • A full parametric model,and modular architecture that allows plugin extensions (modules) to add functionality to the core application.
  • Import/export to standard formats such as STEP, IGES, OBJ, STL, DXF, SVG, STL, DAE, IFC or OFF, NASTRAN, VRML in addition to FreeCAD's native FCStd file format.
  • A Robot simulation module that allows you to study robot movements in a graphical environment.
  • A technical drawing module with options for detail views, cross sectional views, dimensioning and others, allowing you to generate 2D views of existing 3D models.
  • A Rendering module that can export 3D objects for rendering with external renderers.
  • A Path module dedicated to mechanical machining for Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM).

Package parameters

Used only for Portable or Pre Releases Currently

  • /InstallDir - This is the location inside the Chocolatey lib folder specific to this package.
  • /Arguments - This will allow you to specify any of the FreeCAD command line arguements.
  • /NoShortcut - This will not set a Shortcut on the Desktop.
  • /WindowStyle - The normal window setting for most Applications is as a Window. Maximised Window would be 3.

Example: choco install freecad --params "/InstallDir:'C:\FreeCAD' /NoShortcut"

Notes

  • If you should get a Code 2 error while installing FreeCAD. Installing over existing installations is NOT RECOMMENDED. It is better to reinstall FreeCAD.

  • If the package is out of date please check Version History for the latest submitted version. If you have a question, please ask it in Chocolatey Community Package Discussions or raise an issue on the Chocolatey Community Packages Repository if you have problems with the package. Disqus comments will generally not be responded to.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
