No mode name 'VtkRendingQt' on Mac mini

In terminal, it occurs when run python3 and import vtk after compiling VTK 8.2 branch in Mac mini and run ‘make install’.

MacOS: Mojave, Mac mini(2018),
Graphic Card:Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536MB
Python 3.7.2 ;
Qt 5.11.3

I don’t think vtkRendingQt is a module or class in VTK at all… perhaps you’re looking for the vtk.qt module?:

import vtk.qt

from vtk.qt.QVTKRenderWindowInteractor import QVTKRenderWindowInteractor

Do you have any other context on what you’re trying to accomplish?

Enter import vtk in python to report this error, but there is vtkRenderingQTPython in vtkmodules

That’s not good!

Do you have PyQt5 installed?

python3 -m pip install PyQt5

Also - is there any reason your building VTK from source and not using the PyPI wheels?

See this question which has a similar error.
