(error is when trying to build PyQt3D, but error comes from PyQt)

I installed sip with pip.  so no private PyQt sip.

For PyQt 5.13.2:

python3 configure.py --spec=macx-clang

make & install OK

For PyQt3D 5.13.1:

python3 configure.py --spec=macx-clang
Error: Unable to import PyQt5.QtCore. Make sure PyQt5 is installed.

not a very helpful error - PyQt IS installed.

I started python3 and tried to load PyQt5.QtCore as the PyQt3d configure is doing:

from PyQt5 import QtCore
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PyQt5.sip'
