This package is compatible with standard CPython interpreters from www.python.org. Do not install it in Anaconda environments. 

Use pip to download and install the OVITO Python package:

pip install -U ovito==3.7.9

The package provides the OVITO Python module, which can be used free of charge (MIT license).

Compatible Python interpreter versions: 
  • Windows: 3.7 – 3.10 (64-bit)
  • Linux: 3.7 – 3.10 (64-bit)
  • macOS: 3.7 – 3.10 (Intel and Apple Silicon)

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==3.7.9 

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.
