If you are using compas_fea and find that using a function like
rhino.plot_data() is giving an error that looks like:
ImportError: No module named compas.package
This is due to compas (or similarly compas_fea) not being on your system path. Note that, some functions, especially those in compas.utilities.functions will use the XFunc method of compas to get access to your CPython distribution, this is independent of adding any
src folders within Rhino’s IronPython script editor.
To add compas and compas_fea to your system path do the following:
- Go to Advanced System Settings on Windows, and then click Environment Variables:
- Make a variable called
PYTHONPATH, and then make sure both your compas and compas_fea
srcfolders are put in.
