ParaView - Scipy Module

Hello All,

I am trying to visualize my data stored in “.mat” files. Therefore, I am planning to use python scripting with “scipy” module, which has a “.mat” input-output functions. Since “scipy” module is not installed in Paraview, I could not be able to use it. (Scipy is installed in my python via pip). I have copied and pasted scipy module and pasted to “ProgramFiles(x64)/Paraview/bin/lib/the site_packages” . However, this time I faced the following error.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 20, in
File “”, line 3, in RequestData
File “C:/Program Files/ParaView 5.7.0-RC2-Windows-Python3.7-msvc2015-64bit\bin/Lib/site-packages\scipy_ *init* _.py”, line 119, in

My Computer Specs: Windows 10 (64 Bit), Python 3.7, Paraview 5.7
Is there any way to install external python modules into Paraview? If not how can I import mat files?

Thank you very much, in advance!

Edit : scipy is NOT present in ParaView 5.7 on windows.

To answer your questions :

Is there any way to install external python modules into Paraview?

Not yet. It should be possible in 5.8 if all goes well

If not how can I import mat files?

Open them in matlab and save them into .vtk format

@mwestphal Are you sure with regards to scipy? I believe we are compiling scipy into the Linux and possibly Mac builds, but NOT the Windows one. I just checked 5.7.0-RC4 on windows (not present), and Linux (present). Also, I believe you want to import scipy, not scpipy. Anyway, scipy is not built on Windows because it requires the installation of a Fortran compiler.

Python 3.7.4 (tags/v3.7.4:e09359112e, Jul 8 2019, 20:34:20) [MSC v.1916 64 bit (AMD64)] on win32

from paraview.simple import *
import scipy as sp

import scpipy as sp

You are right ! I spoke too fast. Not supported on windows sadly.

Thank you, all! I will use “.mat” to “.vtk” conversion.Thanks!
