Mayavi2 is a interactive program allowing elaborate 3D plots of scientific data in Python with scipy. It is the successor of MayaVi for 3D visualization.

The information on this page is a bit old and outdated. You are invited to refer to the Mayavi2 user guide as a reference. For a quick introduction to scripting, see mlab. In recent versions of Mayavi2, the user guide can be accessed in the help menu, but the user guide for the latest version of Mayavi can also be found on line.

If you need more help, you are invited to ask questions on the Enthought-dev mailing list.

!Mayavi2 relies on VTK, and especially a python interface to it: TVTK.
