Introduction to Python Scripting in VE 2017
The aim of this session is to give users an understanding of how the Python Programming Language can be used with VE 2017 to improve workflows and efficiency, for many different modelling tasks in VE 2017.
- Users are shown some of the basic Python commands and how these can be combined to create a simple script.
- Users are shown how to run this script and others in the VE 2017 Python Editor as well as through the new VE Python Scripting Navigator.
Note: Although no prior python experience is necessary, further training is highly recommended as this video will only serve as a basic introduction.
