Show STL File via gfx.show

Demonstrates show utility with an STL file

Note

To run this example, you need a model from the source repo’s example folder. If you are running this example from a local copy of the code (dev install) no further actions are needed. Otherwise, you may have to replace the path below to point to the location of the model.

import os
from pathlib import Path

try:
    # modify this line if your model is located elsewhere
    model_dir = Path(__file__).parents[1] / "data"
except NameError:
    # compatibility with sphinx-gallery
    model_dir = Path(os.getcwd()).parent / "data"

Once the path is set correctly, you can use the model as follows:

import pygfx as gfx


meshes = gfx.load_mesh(model_dir / "teapot.stl")

if __name__ == "__main__":
    disp = gfx.Display()
    disp.show(meshes[0], up=(0, 0, 1))
show stl
