I would like to advertise/announce on this new platform a python module, developed under the support of EMBL (European Molecular Biology Laboratory), which may turn useful to the general VTK community of users.
It is aimed at scientific visualization and research by creating an API which simplifies most common operations, without hiding access to the native vtk objects.
It currently includes more than 100 example scripts (scroll down to see thumbnails) :
to perform basic functions, some analysis tools, e.g. moving least squares for pointclouds, spherical harmonics expansion, morphing and a bunch of fancy simulations.
Documentation can be found here: vtkplotter.embl.es
Users feedback is always very welcome.
