K3D Jupyter

Downloads Downloads Anaconda-Server Badge CodeQL

K3D lets you create 3D plots backed by WebGL with high-level API (surfaces, isosurfaces, voxels, mesh, cloud points, vtk objects, volume renderer, colormaps, etc). The primary aim of K3D-jupyter is to be easy for use as stand alone package like matplotlib, but also to allow interoperation with existing libraries as VTK. K3D can be run as:

  • Jupyter Notebook extension 🚀
  • Jupyter Lab extension 🎉
  • Google Colab extension 🧪 [still experimental]
  • Standalone HTML/JS 📑
