High level API for PythonOCC

Project description

Development Downloads Build Status Coverage Status GPL v3 Python 2.7 3.*

The aoc-utils project provides a Python package named aocutils with useful modules/classes/methods for PythonOCC. It is a high level API for PythonOCC.

PythonOCC is a set of Python wrappers for the OpenCascade Community Edition (an industrial strength 3D CAD modeling kernel)


pip install aocutils


aocutils depends on OCC >=0.16 and scipy. The examples require wx>=2.8 (or another backend (minor code modifications required)). These requirements cannot be satisfied through pip. Please see the table below for instructions on how to satisfy the requirements.

package version Comment
OCC >=0.16.
See or for instructions
or conda install -c pythonocc-core
scipy latest
Simplest solution is conda install scipy
or a full Anaconda distribution
wx >=2.8 See for instructions


The goal of the aocutils package is to simplify some frequently used operations made in PythonOCC.

The examples are in the examples folder at the Github repository (

The wx backend (wxPython) backend is used for the examples that display a UI. You may easily change this behaviour to use pyqt4 or PySide by changing the backend in the call to init_display().
