The COMPAS framework is an open-source, Python-based framework for computational research and collaboration in architecture, engineering and digital fabrication.
The main library consists of a core package (compas) and several additional packages for integration of the core functionality in CAD software (currently: compas_blender, compas_rhino, compas_ghpython).
The core package defines all real functionality. The CAD packages simply provide a unified framework for processing, visualising, and interacting with geometry and datastructures, and for building user interfaces in different CAD software.
The recommended way to install COMPAS is to use Anaconda/conda:
conda config --add channels conda-forge conda install COMPAS
But it can also be installed using
pip install COMPAS
To verify your setup, run the following:
python -m compas
The COMPAS framework has a forum: https://forum.compas-framework.org/ for questions and discussions.
