Took me quite a while to get FlatCAM running on my Mac. Thought I'd share the recipe in case it might be helpful to others.
Assumes you have the latest MacPorts for Sierra, at this writing version 2.3.5-10.12-Sierra, installed from scratch (would probably also work with a newly updated MacPorts).
Here's what worked for me:
sudo port install python27
sudo port install py27-readline
sudo port select --set python python27
sudo port select --set python2 python27
sudo port install py27-sip
sudo port install py27-pyqt4 (fails: complains about dbus)
supo port -f activate bus
sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist
sudo port install py27-pyqt4 (second time - this one succeeds - but takes a long, long time, most of it in the final configuring and building steps.)
sudo port install py27-simplejson
sudo port install py27-tkinter
sudo port install py27-numpy
sudo port install py27-matplotlib
sudo port install py27-rtree
sudo port install py27-shapely
sudo port install py27-cairosvg
sudo port install py27-pip
sudo python -m pip install svg.path
Now you can run python ./FlatCAM.py from the distribution.

It's really hard for me to help Mac users, since I don't own a Mac and MacOs cannot be run in a virtual machine very easily. This should help a lot if Mac users!
