I am still trying to get a clean installation of sfepy. I am still missing vtk and pysparce libraries. I need to get components that are compatible with an amd-64, python3.x system. Any help with finding these packages and help with their installation will be sincerely appreciated.

Thank you for your responses

"conda install mayavi" should install VTK for you - did you try that?

I have also found a conda package of pysparse, but it seems Python 2.7 only
(https://anaconda.org/guyer/pysparse).

Hi Gary,

What happens, if you do not use the full path to 'conda', i.e. you do just:

`$ conda install mayavi`

Or - is 'conda' on your PATH?

Anyway, this looks like a problem of your anaconda installation - try asking
there about your issue.

Robert,
It seems there is no mayavi for Python 3.6 yet. See in https://github.com/enthought/mayavi/issues/496 (about 21 days ago) from prabhuramachandran himself.

BTW 'conda install mayavi' answers wirh:

UnsatisfiableError: The following specifications were found to be in conflict:
  - mayavi
  - python 3.6*
Use "conda info <package>" to see the dependencies for each package.

OK, that clarifies things. Until it is available, you can use e.g. paraview to
look at the results in the VTK format.

Thanks for the info!

Just to be thorough, it seems there is a Python 3.6 mayavi, but in EDM (from Enthought)!

Thank you all for your help;

I found a copy of paraview  and installed it with conda.  Paraview  reads the .vtk file. The figure is the proper shape and the vertical color bar vs temperature scale is presented. The only problem is that the figure is all blue. I'm not sure whether this is a glitch in paraview or something else. Without digging into the code (I'm not that good) I won't be able to tell.

I looked at the Enthrough mayavi but couldn't figure out how to adapt it to my system. The instructions seem to be more than just a little fuzzy.

Did you check that you have the right variable selected - by default, paraview
shows a single (blue) color of node_groups. Otherwise from your description I
guess it might be some graphics glitch - you can try asking on the paraview
mailing list.

IMHO it is probably not very safe to mix packages from Anaconda and EDM.
