Faster Python bindings for Assimp.

Project description

PyPI version Build Status Documentation Status

Faster (than PyAssimp) Python bindings for Assimp, Cython-based, BSD3 license.

It uses the same naming as the original library, so examples from the official docs can be used directly (minus C sintaxis).

Example usage:

from assimpcy import aiImportFile, aiPostProcessSteps as pp
flags = pp.aiProcess_JoinIdenticalVertices | pp.aiProcess_Triangulate
scene = aiImportFile('mymodel.3ds', flags)
print('Vertex {} = {}'.format(v, scene.mMeshes[0].mVertices[0]))

Matrices, quaternions and vectors are returned as Numpy arrays.

It has been tested with: * Python 2.7 * Python 3.4 +


  • Assimp >= 3.1.1
  • Numpy >= 1.9.2


The easiest way is:

pip install assimpcy

If that does not work for you, please check Installation for instructions.


  • Cameras
  • Lights
  • Export functionality

Those might be added in the future.

And what about the name? Well, cyassimp was already taken :smirk:.
