Another point to clarify, it seems that you are building SCIRun 5, which does not include BioMesh3D.  To build BioMesh3D you will need to build SCIRun 4.  While possible on OSX 10.15, it is not really supported.  We have another meshing tool, Cleaver, that does a similar thing to BioMesh3D, but faster, and is supported.  Here is the link:

Multiple responses here:
1. You can download an installer for Mac on that very page you linked. Then you don’t have to build from source.
2. If you still want to build from source, please follow the more detailed build instructions here:
3. For further problems or questions, try out our new Github discussion page:

Good luck,

Dear developers,

  I was trying to run ./ to build SCIRun on macOS Catalina 10.15.6. However, I was encountering an issue while building:
CMake Error at Superbuild.cmake:130 (MESSAGE):
  Set Qt5_PATH to directory where Qt 5 is installed (containing lib and bin
  subdirectories) or set BUILD_HEADLESS to ON.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
  CMakeLists.txt:38 (INCLUDE)
The CMake version is 3.15.7. 

The error indicates the Qt5_PATH needs to be set, so I have installed Qt5 5.15.1 and set it in Superbuild.cmake.

However, the issue still exists. I am wondering if there is a approach to fix this? Please let me know if other information is needed.

Thank you in advance!
