did you install
compas_fab in the “compas-dev” environment?
First I opened the Anaconda Prompt shell, then i tried to activate the conda in the command line,then i initiated the compas_fab installation. But i am not able to understand whats the issue!Also is it the issue because of the location of my Anaconda is in D drive and C drive is where Rhino is installed?
can you do the following in the Anaconda Prompt and tell me what the result is?
conda activate compas-dev python
this should start an interactive Python session (you recognise this by the
>>>). in that session import
>>> import compas >>> import compas_fab
note: only type
import compas and
import compas_fab, the
>>> are already there…
okay so that means
compas_fab is not installed, at least not in the
before debugging anything else, please make sure
compas_fab is installed in the environment you want to use it from.
I tried installing compas_fab using Anaconda it works good, but when installing compas_fab for Rhino I get following issues( as attached in the image). Also in the compas_fab installation documentation, do you recommend using Anaconda command prompt or the Windows command prompt? As both give different results. The attached image below is using Anaconda command prompt
I tried installing the compas_fab without activating the compas-dev environment. Hence , their was an issue as to why compas_fab was not installing. Thank you so much.
happy to hear it worked.
indeed, you have to make sure that the intended environment is active when you install new packages and/or when you install COMPAS packages for Rhino.
also, it is important to use the Anaconda Prompt and not the Command Prompt, and to run it as administrator to avoid having problems with access rights.
