How to use remote module in Python?

Hi all. I want to use Powercrust and PoissonReconstruction in Python. The version of VTK I am using is 9.0.3. I configured VTK_MODULE_ENABLE_VTK_PoissonReconstruction and VTK_MODULE_ENABLE_VTK_Powercrust to WANT in CMake, set up the Python-related values, and generated Powercrust.cp38-win_amd64.pyd and PoissonReconstruction.cp38-win_amd64.pyd in Visual Studio. However, when I used print(dir()) to check, I found that there were no callable methods. I checked the relevant Python wrapper files and they seem incomplete? How can I achieve my goal?Thanks for your help.

For some reason, the CMakeLists.txt wasn’t set up for wrapping.

Edit Remote/Powercrust/CMakeLists.txt and modify vtk_module_add_module() as follows:

    SOURCES vtkPowerCrustSurfaceReconstruction.cxx
    HEADERS vtkPowerCrustSurfaceReconstruction.h

The HEADERS was missing, and without HEADERS (or, alternatively, CLASSES), the wrappers cannot be generated.
