Comment 1 Neel Chauhan 2018-08-21 15:31:40 UTC
Sorry for the delay in responding.

I am aware of the new version, however, it requires vcglib (https://github.com/cnr-isti-vclab/vcglib). I (or someone else) will have to port it.
Comment 2 Nathan 2018-08-21 17:15:20 UTC
I could probably port the dep but it hasn’t been updated since 2016, do we want to add what loooks like an abandoned project to update this one?

(In reply to Nathan from comment #2)
I created a review for a new port: devel/vcglib:

Comment 4 Neel Chauhan 2018-09-06 17:48:54 UTC
Keep in mind that I no longer maintain cad/meshlab. I still maintain other ports, however.
Comment 5 lbartoletti 2018-12-05 11:37:08 UTC
There is some activity on this project at the end of the year.
If no one takes it, I can try to get it back when version 2018 is released

I started to port the prerealese version of cad/meshlab. You can find my port on github https://github.com/lbartoletti/freebsd-ports/tree/meshlab/cad/meshlab

For the moment, it does not fully compile, but it is on the right track.
The problem is that you have to have devel/vcglib pointing to the development version and not to the latest release that is in our ports. See https://github.com/cnr-isti-vclab/meshlab/issues/258
