Installing from PyPI or Conda¶
Supported Python versions:
Supported operating systems:
Windows 10 (64-bit)
If you have other Python versions (e.g. Python 2) or operating systems, please refer to Build from source and compile Open3D from source.
pip install open3d
We recommend using
pip version >=20.3 for better platform compatibility
checking in Linux.
In general, we recommend using a
virtual environment for
containerization. Otherwise, depending on the configurations,
be needed for Python 3, or the
--user option may need to be used to
avoid permission issues. For example:
pip3 install open3d # or pip install --user open3d # or python3 -m pip install --user open3d
Development version (pip)¶
To test the latest features in Open3D, download and install the development
Please use these links from the latest version of this page only. For example, to install the latest development version on Linux for Python 3.8:
pip install --user --pre https://storage.googleapis.com/open3d-releases-master/python-wheels/open3d-0.13.0-cp38-cp38-linux_x86_64.whl
The development wheels for Linux are named according to PEP600. Please
pip version >=20.3 to install them. The wheels are not yet fully
conda install -c open3d-admin -c conda-forge open3d
If you want to install the Open3D Python packages in a docker conatiner you will need to install a minimum set of dependencies. For more details please see this issue.
Dockerfile looks like this:
# This could also be another ubuntu or debian based distributions FROM ubuntu:20.04 # Install Open3D system dependencies and pip RUN apt-get update && apt-get install --no-install-recommends -y \ libgl1 \ libgomp1 \ libusb-1.0-0 \ python3-pip \ && rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/* # Install Open3D from the pypi repositories RUN python3 -m pip install --no-cache-dir --upgrade open3d
If you need
CUDA support, follow these directions.
Now, try importing Open3D.
python -c "import open3d as o3d"
If this works, congratulations, now Open3D has been successfully installed!
Running Open3D tutorials¶
A complete set of Python tutorials and testing data will also be copied to
demonstrate the usage of Open3D Python interface. See
examples/python for all Python examples.
Open3D’s Python tutorial utilizes some external packages:
opencv-python. OpenCV is only used for reconstruction
system. Please read util/install-deps-python.sh for installing these
