Need help with VTK Blender Plugin


Can you help me to install it on Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 please ?
I put the under ~/.blender/scripts, trying to add this :

VTK_ROOT = /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages
LIBRARY_OUTPUT_PATH = /usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages
PATH_TO_VTKBlender_MODULE = ~/.blender/scripts
import sys

but it doesn’t work !

Can you help me ?


up please !

Need more information.


  • What is
  • Is your python really installed under /usr/local (or most likely /usr)?
  • Have you tried to load the script straight into blender and run it from there?

You know, the little things…


Oh, and error messages are very helpful.

Hi, thank you for your reply !

I’m sorry, I forgot the essential :

from vtk import *

under the python shell, I 've got no error.
I thought when I put the python script under the path of blender script, I’ve got a new entry in File => Import => VTK but not …

  • I don’t try to load the script straight into blender because I don’t know how to do this. By copy paste is-it possible or not ?

If I try to load the script under blender, I post errors !


Just open it up in the text editor and do the ‘run script’ menu item (or alt+P)


Thanks for your reply

I’ve got no errors, no output, nothing in the text editor when I run the script …

up please !


Nobody can help me, please ?
