Kitware provides this asset to enable quick integration of the Visualization Toolkit (VTK) in Unity.

VTK is an open source software for manipulating and displaying scientific data. It includes many advanced algorithm to process data, as well as state-of-the-art rendering techniques.

VTK is used by academicians for teaching and research, by government research institutions, and by many commercial firms who use VTK to build or extend products.

For examples, please see VTK in Action.

This asset enables rendering of VTK scenes into the Unity rendering pipeline using Unity low-level native plug-in interface.

The VTK C# API to be used from Unity scripts is provided through Activiz.

Activiz is a closed source software system that wraps VTK for C#. It allows to quickly develop production-ready, interactive 3D applications in the .NET environment.

Purchasing this asset gives you access to the full set of Activiz capabilities.

The documentation and the example scene shipped with this asset show how to setup a VTK scene within your Unity project.


– OS support:

The VTK plugin has been implemented and tested for Windows only. Support for Linux and MacOS might come in future versions.

– Unity Graphics API:

VTK relies on the OpenGL rendering backend, thus Unity graphics API must be set to OpenGLCore.
