VTK for begineer user.

Hello everyone,
I am a new user.
I am asking the way to install VTK and tutorials and courses related with structural mechanic using VTK?

You forgot to tell us the target OS. I presume that is Windows. Anyway, you can find here a good start documentation: https://vtk.org/Wiki/VTK/Building/Windows

Thank you again.
Do you know the best way to learn VTK.

Just practicing VTK … I learn myself VTK by ran examples from here: https://lorensen.github.io/VTKExamples/site/, tried to understand what it happens there, when I didn’t understood I read the source code which is public, and the last, but not the last, from this forum and this old forum too: vtk.1045678.n5.nabble.com

Thank you again.
I got this error while trying to install VTK.
CMake Error: The source directory “/path/to/VTK” does not exist.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.
Do you have any idea about this error and how to solve it.

Yes, you didn’t provided the path towards VTK source code. Once you provide it, it will go.

Can you tell me how to do that?

Download VTK from vtk.org
Then, start CMake GUI, and there is some option: VTK_DIR. In that option you put the path towards VTK folder.
