Note:

  • if you download zip,unzip,and
  • just copy the whole outermost directory FCGear into /freecad/Mod
    • in Windows must show hidden files, otherwise Mod is hidden
    • in Linux usually Mod path is usr/lib/freecad/Mod. You must open .Mod as administrator and you must give access permissions to all files of "gear". You can also copy to the local Mod: ~/.FreeCAD/Mod
  • since FCGear requires "NUMPY", which is only included since FreeCAD 0.15.4671, it won't run on older versions of FreeCAD
