  • Linux: Python 3.7 – 3.11 (x86_64)
  • macOS: Python 3.7 – 3.11 (arm64 + x86_64)

The following commands will install our ovito package in your conda environment. The package contains the OVITO Python module and the OVITO Pro desktop application:

conda clean --index-cache

conda install --strict-channel-priority -c https://conda.ovito.org -c conda-forge ovito==3.8.4 

Note that you need a license key to use OVITO Pro. The Python module is free (MIT license).

Beware, the name is the same, but this is a different package than the one you find in the conda-forge channel. Theirs brings OVITO Basic, ours brings the Python module and OVITO Pro.
